Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 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 shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
