Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
