Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting 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 truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.
Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
