Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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 motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous 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 will receive  lots of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
