Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
