Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ 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 might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  multiple great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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