Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

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 feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger 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 will receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account 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 less and less „empty runs”.
