Locating the Most Economical Motorcycle Transport Options in Falkirk

When you require the relocation of a motorcycle, your initial action should be to evaluate quotes to guarantee you're receiving a reasonable rate. Shiply simplifies the process of determining the cost of motorcycle delivery in Falkirk and beyond. Simply complete our user-friendly motorbike transport request form, and you'll obtain prices via email within a matter of minutes.

On average, motorcycle delivery expenses on Shiply are approximately £0.55 per mile, although this can fluctuate slightly for exceptionally short or long journeys. Transporting a motorcycle within the UK is typically more affordable than shipping it overseas to Europe or more distant locations.

Prices on Shiply are competitive because once you submit your motorbike delivery request, thousands of rated motorcycle transportation companies compete against each other for the job. This reverse auction process ensures you secure the most competitive price available on the market, whether you require bike transport for a short relocation within the UK, into Europe, or even international motorcycle shipping.

Assessing Motorcycle Transport Rates & Choices

There are four primary methods for transporting your motorcycle:

  1. Open trailer transport

  2. Covered trailer transport

  3. Van or lorry transport

  4. Ridden delivery service

Open trailers are the most prevalent and economical option, as any vehicle capable of towing a specialized motorbike trailer can be utilized. However, your bike will be exposed to the elements during transit.

Covered trailers, vans, and lorries provide more protection but may be slightly more expensive. Most man & van companies can adapt to transport motorcycles securely in their cargo area.

Having someone ride your motorbike to its destination is a bespoke option that's less common and likely to be more costly. It also involves additional mileage and a higher chance of wear and tear.

Your selection of motorcycle transport method will depend on your budget and urgency. Once you receive quotes on Shiply, compare them based on price, transport method, and the provider's feedback score. Accept the quote you're satisfied with, and the chosen company will contact you to arrange the final details.

Readying Your Motorbike for Transport

To minimize the risk of issues during transport, follow these steps:

  • Clean your motorcycle to notice any pre-existing damage or scratches & prevent dirt from contributing to paintwork scratches during handling.

  • Note & photograph any existing nicks or scrapes to check for new damage after transport.

  • Drain oil & petrol if required by the transport company's policy to avoid leaks & ensure safety. Keep some fuel if the bike will be ridden during transit.

  • Ensure tyres are properly inflated to prevent rim damage & make the bike easier to move.

  • Remove any loose panels or accessories that could come off during transit.

  • Tie keys to the bike if transporting with them. Ensure the bike is in working order, taxed, & has a valid MOT if it will be ridden on public roads.

Your chosen motorcycle delivery firm will call when they're near the collection & delivery points. Many Shiply transporters have completed thousands of motorbike moves & are highly experienced, so don't hesitate to ask them any questions.

Verifying Motorbike Condition & Providing Feedback

Once your motorcycle arrives at its destination, meticulously inspect for any transit damage. Address any issues with the transporter & insurance companies immediately.

Remember to provide feedback on Shiply after your delivery is complete, as this helps future customers make informed decisions when selecting a motorcycle transport provider.

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

Does Someone Have To Be Present For Pickup And Delivery?

In most cases, the motorbike delivery company will require you to be in attendance for the pickup and delivery of the motorbike. This is because there are likely to be release forms that you need to sign, as well as handing over the keys.

How Much Fuel Should I Have In My Motorbike During Transit?

Generally, you should aim to have around a quarter of your tank full if the motorbike needs to be moved during transport. This allows for easy loading and unloading of the motorbike but will not add too much extra weight to the vehicle.

Can I Ship My Motorbike If It Isn't Running?

You can ship your motorbike if it isn’t in running condition, however, this will be more expensive as specialist equipment is required to load and unload the vehicle.
