Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted 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 just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 can receive  a lot of great quotes from transport providers registered 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”.
