Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great offers from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies 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 decreasing number of ”empty running”.
