Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
