Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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