Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely get  plenty of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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