A few details would help - from where, are you wanting to fly it home or sea freight or??

What has insurance got to do with anything?

I'm confused

more info..

Dear Boystrom,

as Grant already mentioned, info & details are important for others to give you advice..
So please let us know when you want to ship what from and to where.

The only thing I can say now is that I think that if they pick up the bike you'll only need insurance to DRIVE it. If they pick it up with a trailer you should be fine.
In some countries you can get special one-day insurances for this purpose, just to drive it home, but this is relatively expensive compared to a full years insurance.
Just make sure they have the paperwork to claim the shipment.

Hope this helps..

regards,
Gerbie
