Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. 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 worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  plenty of great quotes from shipping companies registered 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 environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
