Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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  lots of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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