Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle 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 worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van 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 get  plenty of great offers from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
