Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect 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 have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable 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 methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

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