Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 putting an offer on Clicktrans you will get  a lot of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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