Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing 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 secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  plenty of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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