Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle without 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 ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
