Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, 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 instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange 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 decreasing number of ”empty running”.
