Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
