Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes 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 crucial 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 looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
