Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. 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 that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

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

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