Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
