Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 surely receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
