Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, 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 shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is 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 shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
