Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created 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'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 objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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