Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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