Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is 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 hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
