Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous 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 surely get  plenty of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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