UK Shippers to the States

I am looking for recommendations of shippers in the UK willing to pick up and crate a bike for shipment and put it either on an aircraft to New York, or a container.
Any advise is greatly appreciated.

Shipping Bikes.

Hi John, I used this lot to ship my Comet to it's new owner in CA. They will crate it for you and put it on the plane and take care of all the paperwork.

They are about an hour from me so if you need a bike picked up then give me a shout.

Not long to the IOM:D

Shipping - recommendation

Hi John,
My newly bought Rapide is due to arrive back into the UK this week coming, so I can't comment on the quality of crating and a machine arriving safe and sound but I have used Brian Moxham at CH Robinson, they advertise in MPH as well as the Ducati Owners website that I am also a member of. Brian has been personally very helpful if getting me through all the customs paperwork as we are trying to get VAT (tax) exemption. I can let you know how things go next week when the bike trys to clear customs and what state she is in when I pick her up - but so far the service has been excellent and the quote was a competitive one money wise.
I'm only 20 minutes from Heathrow and there's a secure garage, if I can do anything to help just let me know.
