Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
