Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 surely receive  a lot of great quotes from transport providers registered 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 environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
