Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can receive  a lot of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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