Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger 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 transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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