Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. 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 may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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