Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated 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 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 edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can arrange 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 decreasing number of ”empty running”.
