Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorbike using 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly 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 motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
