Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 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 two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
