Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid 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 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two 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 shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing 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 car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
