Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important 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 shipment.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
