Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers 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”.
