Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure 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 ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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