Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could 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 which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
