Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up 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 necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
