Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport 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 truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes 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, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
