Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
