Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
