Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van 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  plenty of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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