Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up 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 motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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