Peter and his team transported my newly restored 1968 BMW R60/2 from Jhb to Durban and then to my home address in Munster KZN South Coast, this was done 5 days before Xmas in the silly season. All the way thru the transportation I was kept informed of the progress, by the team. The bike arrived as promised, no damage, great professional service.

5 Star service

I have used Bike Freight Transport twice now, transported bikes from Centurion to East London, great price, super friendly and awesome service, thank you Peter and team, as usual always great doing business with you! In a day and age where service delivery is almost non-existent its fantastic to still find companies like Bike Freight Transport who go out of their way to assist you.

5 Star service

I used the services of Bike freight transport from Cape Town to Pretoria, and the owner, Peter was quick to respond to queries and his team provided quality service. My motorbike reached its destination a week later in tip-top shape. I am recommending Peter and his crew to everyone who needs this service. Great work chaps.
