Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
