Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.
When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.
Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
