Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is 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 looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  plenty of great offers from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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