Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  multiple great offers from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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