Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts 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 needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 get  lots of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
