Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 case you will need only 2 belts. It's 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 looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great offers 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, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
