Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will get  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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