Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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 crucial 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 transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
