Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
