Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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