Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 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 2 belts. It's 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 transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
