Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ 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 will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
