Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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

 

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

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