Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered 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 with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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 receive  lots of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
