Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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