Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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