Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle on 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 situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
