Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 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 one will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
