Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult 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 motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
