Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 get  multiple great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
