Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can arrange 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”.
