    I think they like pick up to central to area or city. i had one from timuru
    2 from auckland one from new plymoth way. forget the others.
    250.00 300.00 . haevent had one shiped in more than a year.
    did a engine month ago. u can either pick up from depo or have to trucked to your door.
    I wouldn't use Mainfreight. I used them a while ago to ship some vinyl seat upholstery from LA. They ended up charging me $400 (tax, GST, some MAF charge) for freight for something that I could have airfreighted under $120... The freight was double the cost of the seat cover. Their charges blew the costs out so much. I was so fucked off paying for it. And then they tried chasing me for the money, and I kept sending them copies of their receipt. Motherfuckers. Total motherfuckers.

    I was so fucked off, that I cancelled the freight on all the Satellite rigs I was importing into NZ, and I used an alternate company instead.

    The service experience was just like prison sex.
    It’s diametrically opposed to the sanitised existence of the Lemmings around me in the Dilbert Cartoon hell I live in; it’s life at full volume, perfect colour with high resolution and 10,000 watts of amplification.

    I too have had a terrible experience with Mainfreight, albeit not a motorcycle being shipped but terrible none the less. NEVER AGAIN.

    I used BidRider to get a bike to dunedin, They use a third party to move bike from north to south island in the back of a truck.... not ideal but it got here in one piece..

    Would appreciate if anyone can share their experience using wisemove.co.nz/motorcycle-transportation? Or maybe someone knows a better similar website?

    Biketranz? Mainfright? I have had no luck with any of them... mainfright Auckland-gore $600 bike arrived looking like it had a mud bath.. biketranz, bike arrived looking like it left, except 5 days late with no contact or explanation. That was Auckland-Nelson around the same price.

    I should note that the mainfright bike was packed very well on a proper steel pallet with a steel frame around it.
