Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ 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 might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  a lot of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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