Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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 receive  plenty of great offers from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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