Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
