Motorcycle Shipping Kidderminster: Cost-Effective & Dependable Options


When you require motorcycle transportation, your initial action should be to compare prices to guarantee you're receiving a reasonable deal. Shiply simplifies the process of determining motorcycle shipping costs in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, UK. Just complete our straightforward motorcycle transport request form, and you'll receive price estimates via email within minutes.


Motorcycle Shipping Prices in Kidderminster


In the UK, motorcycle shipping services are typically more affordable than transporting your bike internationally to Europe or beyond. On Shiply, you can anticipate a cost per mile of approximately £0.55, although this may fluctuate slightly for exceptionally short or long journeys. Prices on Shiply remain competitive because once you submit your motorcycle shipping request, thousands of highly-rated motorcycle transportation companies vie for your business. It's akin to a reverse auction, ensuring you secure the most competitive price available.


Whether you need motorcycle transport for a brief relocation within the UK, a longer journey into Europe, or even international motorcycle shipping, Shiply can assist. People frequently transport motorcycles to and from Kidderminster for various purposes, such as moving, acquiring a new motorcycle, or participating in local events.


Assessing Motorcycle Shipping Rates


There are four primary methods for executing your motorcycle shipping service:
1. Open trailer transport: Unlike car transporters, motorcycles can be shipped by any vehicle capable of towing a suitable trailer. This expands your options and helps maintain low costs. However, your motorcycle will be exposed to the elements during transit.
2. Covered trailers: These are less prevalent than open trailers, but utilizing larger vehicles like vans and lorries for motorcycle shipping is common. Most man and van companies can adapt to transport motorcycles with the appropriate equipment to keep the bike secure. Enclosed transport options are arguably the safest and most secure but may be more expensive than open transport.
3. Ridden delivery: If you're unable to ride your motorcycle to its destination, you have the option of having someone else ride it for you. This is a customized option and less popular than other methods. There is a higher risk of wear and tear on the motorcycle, as well as additional mileage. It could be a viable choice for urgent moves but is likely to be more costly.
4. Specialist lorries: These can transport motorcycles in large quantities but aren't very common for individual private jobs.


Your selection of motorcycle shipping method will likely depend on your budget and urgency. Once you receive a few motorcycle delivery quotes on Shiply, compare them based on price, transport method, and the provider's feedback score. When you're satisfied with a quote, simply accept it, and your chosen company will contact you to finalize the details.


Readying Your Motorcycle for Shipping


Before your motorcycle collection/pickup occurs, we suggest preparing for the transport to significantly minimize the risk of problems:
1. Cleaning: This helps you identify any damage or scratches that might have been previously unnoticed. Dust or dirt on the motorcycle can contribute to scratching the paintwork during handling and moving.
2. Note damage: Document any nicks or scrapes on your motorcycle with photographs to determine if your bike has been damaged during transportation once it reaches its destination.
3. Fluids: Depending on the motorcycle shipping company's policy, you may need to drain oil and petrol from your motorcycle to prevent leakages and ensure safety. If the motorcycle is to be ridden during transit, you'll need to retain some fuel in the tank.
4. Tyres: Ensure tyres are properly inflated to help avoid damage to rims and make the motorcycle easier to move.
5. Extras: Before the motorcycle move, ensure there are no loose panels or accessories left on the bike that could easily detach during transit. If you're shipping your motorcycle with its keys, consider attaching them to the motorcycle itself. If the transporter is going to ride your motorcycle on public roads, ensure it's in working order with valid tax and MOT.


Your selected Kidderminster motorcycle shipping firm will give you a courtesy call when they are near the collection and delivery points to ensure you are available. Many transport companies on Shiply have completed thousands of motorcycle deliveries and are highly experienced, so don't hesitate to ask them any questions if you have concerns.


Verifying Motorcycle Condition & Providing Feedback


Once your motorcycle shipping is complete and it arrives at its destination, ensure you or the motorcycle's new owner performs a thorough inspection to confirm the vehicle hasn't been damaged in transit. Any issues should be addressed with the transporter and insurance companies promptly.


When you chose your motorcycle shipping provider on Shiply, you likely read the customer reviews and relied on their feedback score percentage. Please help others do the same in the future by providing feedback once your delivery is complete.

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.

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.
