A Choice for Simplicity and Ease, Concierge Service

For our riders, shipping bikes into  Dublin, Gatwick, Glasgow and Manchester:

Motorcycle Express is thrilled to offer a concierge type of service through PBS International Freight Ltd. We have had a long standing relationship with this superb company. For a fee of £75, you can expect to arrive at your Port, make a phone call to our contact at PBS and they will come and walk you through customs. The £75 is paid directly to them at that time. If you must pick up your cycle on a weekend the fee is £95.

This is recommended. You deal directly with the broker and pay them directly. (It seems that these ports are requiring a broker now._
