Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 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 by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will get  a lot of great quotes from shipping 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 trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
