Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to 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 another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from transport 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 cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
