Motorcycle Enthusiasts Moving Overseas Give Their Lambrettas The Special Treatment

Mar 31. 2010

Lambretta Scooters Arrive Safe & Sound in Austrailia

International removals specialist, Burke Bros Moving Group www.burkebros.co.uk based in the West Midlands, UK, have witnessed an interesting and growing trend toward motorcycle enthusiasts wanting to ship their much-loved motorbike with them as they start their new life overseas.

To help them embrace this trend, Burke Bros have fine-tuned a special tailor-made packing service for all those motorbike aficionados.

Burke Bros Managing Director, Gary Burke said: “More and more people, who enjoy motorbiking, are insisting they take their motorcycle along with them overseas. In fact, they are so fond of their favourite motorbike they are becoming more and more precious about its well being, during it transportation in the overseas shipping container.”

Gary continued: “Last year we had a charming enquiry from a couple, Wayne & Jo Rhodes, who were moving from Leicester in the UK to Queensland in Australia, and they wanted to take their two prized Lambrettas with them, using our bespoke motorcycle crating service.”

Wayne said: “I’ve owned my 1970 Lambretta for over 22 years and if it could not go to Oz then neither was I. Jo has owned her 1959 Lambretta for a few years now, recently having it re-sprayed, and she loves it! Thanks to Burke Bros our Lambrettas arrived in Australia safe, sound, and in mint condition. Their special motorcycle crating service certainly did the trick, and we plan to recommend Burke Bros to all of our friends if they plan the big move.”

Yet another couple, from Wolverhampton, who are making final plans to move to Perth in Australia, own a Harley Davidson. The couple said: “Our Harley Davidson is our pride and joy and there’s no way we’re leaving it behind in the UK. The tailor-made motorcycle service being offered by Burke Bros sounds an ideal way to safely ship our Harley to Australia.”

Chris Starkey, Head of the Burke Bros International Department, said: “In response to this growing trend, this time last year we started offering a first-class motorcycle crating service. The way it works is; we collect the customer’s motorcycle from their home, in a purpose built motorcycle master van, we then transport the bike to our new specialist crating facility, we steam clean it and drain all lubricants like oil and petrol etc, then disconnect the battery ready for shipping. We then secure the motorcycle into a uniquely made metal frame, so the bike is completely and rigidly secure. To finish off we box it with a protective wooden crate covering, ready for shipping abroad. This ensures the customer’s motorcycle will get to its overseas destination with maximum protection and damage-free.”
