Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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 posting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great offers from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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