Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
