Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
