Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
