Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 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 transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
