Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
