Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
