Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
