Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van 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  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise 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”.
