Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorcycle on 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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.
