Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when 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 feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, 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 example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  a lot of great offers from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
