Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside 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 to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
