Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible 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 above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
