Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.
When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.
It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.
There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.
Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
