Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
