Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
