Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles 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's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
