Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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