Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles 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 essential 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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