Transport 6 bikes UK to Marakech

I know this is p*ssing distance for most of you but any advice would be gratefully accepted.

We want to get six enduro bikes to Morocco so we can fly in for a weeks riding.

Does anyone know of a company that does that kind of thing.

Thanks in advance

Anyone know what biketruck charge for a one way trip (to Spain)? Looks like a good option for saving some time.

Cheers.

Not too sure...think i heard 350pounds one way and 500 return.Please dont take that as gospel though.....could be loads cheaper especially if you organise a group of bikes from one pick up point.I don't think 500 return is too bad...get yourself a cheapie with easyjet return for 50quid and meet yourbike in Malaga....sorted!
I think it could work out more expensive riding down and back after paying for ferries,hotels,fuel,tolls etc....plus the boring motorway and the time it takes....

Trucking unaccompanied bikes across to Morocco is no problem....the truck driver will need V5 for the bike.....though just to be safe i would give all paperwork plus photo copied page from bike owners passport.
If trucked back from Morocco unaccompanied expected panniers to be searched by customs...possibly both custom points...good idea to leave pannier keys with truck or you will end up with forced locks.
