Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.

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 eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
