Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 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 reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  plenty of great offers from transport 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, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
