Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle 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 specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
