Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed 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's essential 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 transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire 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 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.
