Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger 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 can receive lots of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.
Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
