Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created 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 one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
