Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 elements 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 van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport 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 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 receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
