Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
