Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially 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 important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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 can get  a lot of great offers from transport 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, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
