Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
