Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
