Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 get  multiple great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
