Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's 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 cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
