Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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