Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  plenty of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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