A friend of mine shipped his LT to Brazil. He went back home after living in the US for 11 years. She also shipped his LT in a large Container with other household items, it was one of those containers that is basically a Semi Truck back end. He used a large platform, built accordingly for a motorcycle, with places for the tires and heavy duty tie downs (6 of them) 2 in front, 2 in the rear and two in the center, when the LT was loaded he placed it in the rear of the container (last thing loaded) and also attached the front and rear tie downs to the container itself.
Long story short it arrived there unharmed, some of the other items in the container shifted but the lt and the platform is was on was in the same place.
I am going to ping him today I still keep in touch with him and ask him where he came upon that platform.
I will let you know
