Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important 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 angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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 motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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