Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, 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 scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important 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 edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
