Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
