Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 should not open up accidentaly 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 possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.
Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive plenty of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.
Many of these providers can arrange the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
