Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember 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 motorcycle 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.
