Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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