Can you collect my bike from my house.Yes we can arrange that for you through, either our own fleet for  picking up groups, (four to eight bikes) or transport companies local to where you live. We will quote you on a case by case basis.

Do you transport all kinds of bikes. Our Bike stowage system does cater for all types of bikes but it will not work for oversize bikes with custom front forks or oversized rear wheels. Sorry no trikes!

I live in the north is there any other pick up options.We would suggest we collect your bikes for you and deliver them back. This will be extra cost but then you can fly from any airport.

How is my Motorbike loaded onto the trailer.Our trained drivers will secure your bike onto a shuttle trolley to allow easy movement onto our specially designed trailer. Once in situ the trolley is secured to the deck of the trailer. This is all done by our staff and at no time is excessive use of the bike’s suspension required to stow the bike securely for transit. The bike will be offloaded and ready to ride when you meet the Shuttle in Geneva

What time does my Bike arrive.The shuttle arrives at our base in Geneva or Toulouse on the morning of the Friday (check dates sometimes we arrive on Wednesday)  after departure. Usually your bike is ready for about 0930. (Toulouse 11.30) On the way back it arrives at our Northampton base at about midday on the Saturday  (Check the dates page) after departure.

Is it ever late. Rarely, but sometimes we are delayed beyond our control particularly if we get held up at Calais. (only happened once this year) please check our terms and conditions of carriage because we do not guarantee times and do not cover any extra cost you might incur through delay.


What about insurance for my bike and riding gear. Your bike is fully insured up to a value of £20,000 whilst in our care, and your Helmet and leathers are also covered up to their replacement value for loss.

Can Bikeshuttle accommodate two helmets and leathers for me and my pillion. Yes we can for a limited number of riders on one shuttle. We will process this request at the time of booking. The name and address details for the passenger will be needed. There is a £39 charge for pillion carriage

Do I have to pay the whole cost upfront. no a 25% deposit to secure your place then we require full payment eight weeks before transport date. The deposit is non refundable because we will block out spaces for you on the shuttle. Once you have paid the balance on your booking, if you then cancel there is a 100% charge. We strongly advise that you take out cancellation insurance.

Do your prices include hotel accommodation. No the cost of hotels is not included in our prices we will quote for storage and hotel charges separately. (please see our price panel on the home page).  The drop off point is at a hotel which we would recommend.  We can book this for you and add the cost to your invoice total. You can stay at other hotels or just meet the truck the next morning.

What is the cost for storage. Generally you can add about £20 per day to our standard charge. This does include the check in and check out of storage  and full risk insurance cover.

Do you book flights. No we do not book flights and the cost is not included in our charges. We recommend the 1810 flight from Luton with Easy-jet on the departure night. (This returns on the Saturday morning at 1110hrs, our minibus connects to these flights. Please check our dates page).  We provide transfers to Luton Airport on this flight combination . Please see the price panel on the destination page.

What if I  just want to go for the weekend. This can easily be accommodated. We will store you bike at the Geneva drop off point before you get there and after you drop the bike off on the Sunday night. So there will be storage charges but other than that, its no problem.
