Can I send my belongings with my motorcycle?
Loose boxes may be carried @ $50 per box. They must be able to handled by 1 person, weigh less than 15kg and taped and clearly addressed.

Yes, but it may incur additional charges. Please call for further details, if your motorcycle is in-operable.
What if I am unavailable when you pick up or deliver the motorcycle?
Have an alternative party like a friend or relative to sign on your behalf if you are not available for the pickup of your motorcycle. Make sure there is someone available to be reached directly by mobile phone for the driver to schedule a delivery/pickup time. The driver usually calls within 24 hours before their arrival, and the delivery/pickup time is within a 2-hour time frame.
What if my location is inaccessible to the truck?
Most or our trucks are either 10 metres for urban pickups or up to 22 metres long in regional areas which makes it impossible to reach some residential areas due to narrow roads, trees, power lines, city ordinances, and other road factors. The driver will attempt to get as close as possible to the delivery location, or we will arrange a convenient location like shopping center or major street crossing to pick up or deliver your motorcycle. Drivers generally will not enter a client’s property and will remain on the road.
Do I need to drain the fluids from the motorcycle?
No, there is no need to remove fuel or oils from the bike or disconnect the battery. Pl ensure that there are no oil leaks

All bikes are strapped down with 4 x 500kg ratchet straps on the front axle and rear axles or swing arm depending on the type of bike. We do NOT strap down the front forks using the handlebars or utilise any part of the bike that is susceptible to breakage.
