Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
