Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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.
