Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed 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 will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
