Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  multiple great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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