Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated 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's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.
Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
