Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can receive  a lot of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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