Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.
Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
