Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.
Do not forget to 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 motorbike 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 get plenty of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.
Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
