Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created 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 neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted 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 protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

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

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
