Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Remember 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
