Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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 putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely receive  a lot 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 environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
