Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  plenty 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 cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
