boxing bikes

  1. Hey all,

    im new and looking to buy my first 250cc. But i live in Darwin (top of the map :grin: ).

    Pretty much all of the bike movers that i queried have quoted me over 1000.00 to ship a bike to here from anywhere.
    But then a mate said that if u can get the bike boxed at a bike shop then a freight company will send it here for as little as 300 ish. with insurance(to a degree i suppose).
    My question is how approachable are local bike shop to doing this for u.? If any one has experience in this area would be a great help.

    P.s. Not to sure where i will buy a bike from yet but more then likely not Tasmania.)
