Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
