Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorbike 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 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 by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive plenty of great offers from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.
Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
