Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger 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 receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies 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”.
