With Willship, Your Motorcycle Is In Safe Hands

Modern-day motorcycle shipping to NZ, UK to NZ, or Australia to NZ is very safe. Everyone that has a hand in the shipping process is required to log information as it moves from one stage to the next. Having said that, everyone involved in the journey is held accountable.

From the time the motorcycle is loaded onto the tow truck until it is delivered to your chosen destination, the entire process is diligently monitored, so there is no risk of it "going missing" or us not knowing where it is at any point during the transit.

Shipping a motorcycle from Australia to New Zealand or anywhere else in the world may appear daunting, but rest assured that Willship International is the International motorcycle transport company you can trust.
