Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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