Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect 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 car or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 surely get  multiple great offers from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
