Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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