Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how 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 it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated 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's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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 can get  multiple great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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