Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  lots of great offers from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
