Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle 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 secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
