Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
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 scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
