Looking for man with van-UK Import

Hi Folks,

Im importing bike from UK,possibly Norwich, Norfolk. (might change to completely different area)

Nearest airport is too far,so flying over not an option.

Im looking for a person with van that i can travel with to destination-inspect bike,complete documentation etc...

OR a person with good knowledge about bikes who know their stuff and can do all this for me.

Any ideas?

Re: Looking for man with van-UK Import

Previous post of mine recently. Slick, professional & FULLY INSURED. UK stores & up north shops use him. Highly recommended.








"Have a look for MB Transport - based in Bangor, Co Down. You'll find him on facebuk.

Chaps name is Mervin, his number is " ++44 seven seven 27 2626 2 zero ". I had hassle with one dealer in UK, really fuked me up, and Mervin has been very flexible to go collect at the other end of the country, literally. His rates are good and i will be using him again before the end of the summer.


Anyone else looking for UK / IE transport , i couldnt recommend this guy enough He is back and forth regular and always busy, thats a good sign.


I have checked him out, all legit etc and good at what he does, and you can actually reach him. I will be using him again for sure"

Would this person inspect the bike,checked if all documents are correct and sign for me documentation? Or that would be too much?

Walk on ferry, 2-3 hrs on. Arrive at port hire van and your day is only starting at lunchtime. My experience would be to fly and ride back home. Makes it easy to make an afternoon or late afternoon ferry from West coast ports. Hiring a van can include overnight in UK so costs rise. At that stage it can be cheaper to hire a courier to pick up your bike. I bought a bike a few years back by flying over checking the bike out and got a courier to bring the bike home. My return flights on that bike cost 20.00.

Depending on where the bike is in the UK.

Get the overnight ferry.....be sitting outside rental car office for them to open (9am) this works. Has been done.

I consider going to get a bike/car from the UK, a road trip, an experience, something to knock a bit of craic out of.

Everyone is different.

Fair enough, I enjoy a good road trip but not in the UK on four wheels today.Traffic there is a nightmare with very heavy congestion definitely anywhere in Midlands or near the main city areas. No problem picking up a bike in Scotland as roads are way less busy. Suppose every man to themselves
