Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
