Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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  multiple great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
