Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four 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 case you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
