Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
