Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

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

Many of these providers can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
