Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous 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 get  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
