Our trucks and services across Australia are still in operation thrugh this uncertain time we are all facing due to Covid-19.

It's currently business as usual, however we may be seeing some delays across some legs due to high demand.  We request that all customers call the office on 1300 45 54 64 or email enquiries@bikelogistics.com.au to confirm next available schedules before booking to avoid disappointment and charges.

Our drivers have minimal physical or close contact with customers and as a transport and logistics company transport is considered to be an essential service.  Drivers have been provided with strict protocols in terms of distancing and vehicles are fitted out with hand sanitiser which drivers are using before and after dealing with customers and handling motorcycles.  

As you are all aware, these are unprecedented times and we are doing the best we can under difficult circumstances.  We are all doing the best we can so we appreciate your kindness and support during this time while we work through the various government restrictions.

In the meantime, it's business as usual.  We are facing staffing shortages but are working behind the scenes to establish work from home practices.  Our preferred means of communication at the moment is email however you can still contact us during business hours via phone.  Please be patient as we may have wait times that are outside of normal for us.

Sending all our customers all the best and much health during these times.

As you are all aware we are living in unprecedented times with restrictions being placed via national and state/territory leaders to minimise the spread of Coronavirus.

For Bike Logistics, it's currently business as usual.  Our drivers have minimal physical or close contact with customers and as a transport and logistics company we are considered to be an essential service.  Our drivers have been provided with strict protocols in terms of distancing and vehicles are fitted out with hand sanitiser which drivers are using before and after dealing with customers and handling motorcycles.  

For the moment it's business as usual however there may be delays on motorcycles travelling in/out of WA and we remain to see whether we will have any trucks travelling in/out of Tasmania.  We advise that you check dates BEFORE booking by calling our office or emailing our team to avoide disappointment.  This applies to all services across Australia.  As you are all aware, these are unprecedented times and we are doing the best we can under difficult circumstances.  We are all flying by the seat of our pants and appreciate your patience and understanding while we work through the various government restrictions.

In the meantime, it's business as usual.  We are facing staffing shortages but are working behind the scenes to establish work from home practices.  Our preferred means of communication at the moment is email however you can still contact us during business hours via phone.  Please be patient as we may have wait times that are outside of normal for us.

Sending all our customers all the best and much health during these times.

As all Australians are acutely aware, our country is currently in the midst of one of the most challenging times in our history.  We currently have road closures throughout NSW, Eastern Victoria and between South Australia and Western Australia.  This has a significant impact on the transport and logistics industry and as such we are facing delays.  Vehicles are still moving but there will be delays in some areas.  As everyone can appreciate the safety of drivers, motorcycles and our vehicles is our main priority and as such where decisions are made to not move trucks they are made with safety as a priority.  While in some areas trucks may be moving there's still significant safety concerns posed by smoke, ash and low visibility.  We request our customers to remain understanding of the situation at hand and to please rest assured that we are doing everything we can to ensure motorcycles are delivered as soon as possible and in the condition they were received.  

We are however facing an unprecedented situation and we are doing our best in the office to answer the high influx of calls and emails.  We request that people remain patient with us and we welcome you to contact us and remain in communication in relation to your transport.  We have customers where we have their motorcycles but they no longer have a home for us to deliver.  This is a very sobering situation for many people.  We thank you for your patience.  The Bike Logistics team.

24/12/2019

The Bike Logistics team will be taking a well earned break from midday on 24/12/19 and will be returning on 3/1/20.  But while we won't be available to take calls in the office during this period, we will be periodically checking emails and quotes.  So please send through all enquiries to bookings@bikelogistics.com.au or go onto our website and pop in an online quote - www.bikelogistics.com.au.  We wish all our customers a happy Christmas and a safe and joyous New Year!  We would like to thank you all for your support in 2019 and we look forward to a wonderful 2020!

In this day and age of BikeSales, Ebay and Gumtree we know how easy it is to find the bike you've been searching for interstate but the heartache associated with handing over your hard earned money for a motorcycle that you haven't seen!

Given this, we offer a secure payment handover service where we receive the identifying details of the motorbike and you send us a cheque made out to the seller for the total amount.  We go to the pickup location and make sure we have the correct motorcycle and handover the cheque in exchange for the motorcycle.  Unfortunately this can't be offered in every state but we can accommodate this service in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Tasmania. Please call our friendly team to discuss options and costs on 1300 45 54 64.

The 2015 Phillip Island Moto GP is now only weeks away!  Get in quick to secure your spots in our trucks to the Island! 

 We will be sending all our trucks and vehicles down to the Island in the week leading up to, and following the Moto GP.  If you would like us to transport your motorcycle to the Island we recommend you get in quick to secure your spots.  We are able to keep the costs down given the higher demand we have servicing the island.

As our head office is based in Melbourne we have a fully manned depot located in Campbellfield (about a 20 minute drive from Melbourne Airport).  If you prefer to transport your bike to our depot and then collect your motorcycle in order to ride to the Island, we are more than happy to faciliate this for you.
