Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed 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 car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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