Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car 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 sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
