Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  plenty of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
