Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
