Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary 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 edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  lots of great offers from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
