Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, 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 feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike 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 two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  plenty of 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 trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
