Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will 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 it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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 posting an offer on Clicktrans you will get  lots of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust 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 less and less ”empty running”.
