Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, 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 transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 strapping belts. It's important 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck 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 help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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 can receive  a lot of great offers from transport providers 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, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
