Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. 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 moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.
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 doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car 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 ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
When posting an offer on Clicktrans you can get plenty of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.
Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
