Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.
Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
