1 company seems okay already......
I spoke to a couple of firms today. One usually transports cars to Spain and wanted about £400 door-to-door(per bike).
Another i spoke to was purely a haulage/removal agent. They were much more helpful. I based my quote on four enduro type bikes individually crated in boxes 1800x1000x400. This needs the wheels and bars removing, but its not that much of a hassle. You could pack them all into one crate to make it even smaller. I estimated 200kgs per crate, which should be reasonable for a 130kg bike plus a few bits of kit and the crate itself.
They quoted £398+vat for Leeds to Malaga(actually their depot nearby) and £476+vat for the return leg. This was for ALL 4 bikes and the pick up from an address in Leeds. There are weekly services on tuesday and Friday
I spoke to a chap called Dave Fisk at Universal Express in Felixstowe( (01394) 282867).
I don't mind the hassle of crating bikes if it means i can save a few quid. This price didnt include the crates or a small storage fee at the depot, of which there was talk of a tenner a week.
Any other ideas?
