Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 two belts. It is neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous 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 receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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