Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard 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 have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike 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 which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two 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 by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger 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 get a lot of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.
Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
