Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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