Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation 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 should not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
