Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. 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.
