Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two 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 looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
