Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult 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 gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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  lots of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
