Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
