Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
