Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  plenty of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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