Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been 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 should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
