Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing 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 attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
