Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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