Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable 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 ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van 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 will surely get  a lot of great offers from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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