Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike 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 motorbike. 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  multiple great quotes from transport providers 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, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
