Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been 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 one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. 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 be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  plenty of great offers from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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