Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will receive  a lot of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
