Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard 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 got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes 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 checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
