Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is 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 is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  plenty of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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