Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 can get  lots of great quotes 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 trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
