Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing 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 secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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