Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped 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 created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough 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.
