Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 belts. It's essential 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip 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 obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
