Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook 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 doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
