Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside 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 above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
Do not forget 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 motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
