Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  multiple great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
