A note from Carolynn about bike transport:

These prices are locked in till the 30 June 2024 after which the 2nd of three planned federal government price hikes of 6% on all heavy vehicle ie road tax, fuel and registration commences making it 12.06% more expensive for heavy vehicles to operate than it was on 30 June 2023, with the first 6% price hike starting yesterday (1 July 2023).
 
Just a note – there are a number of booking agencies like Bike Logistics, Bike Nut and Motorbike Movers and some of them will make it sound like they actually transport bikes. They don’t. They use the cheapest contractors with very different levels of competency. If they are offering a cheaper price it will mean they are using one of around 8 known ‘transporters’ that use an open trailer towed by a Ford Ranger or van, carting boat engines, jetskis, general freight etc and use ramps to push bikes on and often have no idea how to tie down properly. They have no insurance.
 
Please let your members know that since a number of long term motorcycle carriers have just in the last few years quit due to increasing costs and these dodgy transporters. All legitimate motorcycle carriers are all pretty much the same price. Allwest and Toy Haul have gone. East Coast Motorycle Pickups has downsized considerably. Most of the dodgy carriers last 2-3 years before they collapse and get replaced by anothe dodgy carrier.
 
If any of your members are in areas outside those listed in my quote they can contact me and I can put them in touch with regional carriers that can get their bikes to one of those regional centres if needed.
 
Regards
Carolynn
