Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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