Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary 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 van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
