Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.
When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.
Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

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