Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 can get  lots of great quotes from transport 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, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
