Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 will surely receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

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