Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles 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 neccessary 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 van 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 motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
