Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, 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 shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

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

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
