Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created 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 is essential 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 angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  plenty of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise 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”.
