Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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 putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
