Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.
It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
