Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  lots of great offers from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

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