Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary 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 truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  plenty of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise 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”.
