Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger 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 receive  plenty of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
