Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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