Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
