Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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