- Shipping to the Isle of Man
That’s a good point
The riding on the Isle of Man is brilliant – think every type of UK riding compressed into 37 miles of hills (I can put you in touch with some good riding buddies if you want?)
If you are booking a van on the Steam Packet, book it as a car
They rarely check, but they’ll only charge you more if there are tools in the back.
Fill the bike with your funny little contraption and some bikes and you’ll be fine (done it plenty of times)
If you book a month before sailing, you’ll get it for £220 or less
As i say – the riding is brilliant! 🙂Posted 4 years agoDr_UpGradeMember
Can it, or will it fit on a pallet? If so then I think you will be looking in the £100-200 range… (I only know as I was looking at shipping my bike over there to sell to my brother). I think the company I was looking at was also out of skelmersdale, or around there anyhow. Let me know and I’ll see if I can find the details if you like…Posted 4 years agoamplebrewMember
There are quite a few people advertising transportation to and from the IOM on the local websites.
It might be worth while driving it to Heysham yourself and then meeting someone with a van who is prepared to take it over on the boat for you.
I also had a large dog cage brought over to the IOM around a few months ago and after getting a quote from Graylaw and Manx Independant, Manx Independent were the cheapest.
We had the dog cage initially sent from Trans K9 in Castle Douglas, Scotland to the Manx Independant UK depot of Edmundson Haulage, 8 Prospect Place Prescot Road, East Pimbo Estate, Skelmersdale, WN8 9QD using K9’s usual courier for £48 and then just paid Manx Independent separately.
Manx Independent charged me £50 for a standard sized pallet from their UK depot to the IOM.Posted 4 years ago
