Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed 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 should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary 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 truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, 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.
