Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
