MotorBike transport Scam please read

Hi to all,

Just a quick note to let you guys know not to use www.motorbiketransport.com.au or www.motorbiketransport.net.au to transport any of your bikes. I have lost my money and the bike was never transported. Both appear to be nothing more than website fronts and once they have your money there is no further correspondence no matter how hard you try. I know there will be some that are saying i should have been more cautious but these guys advertise with some major website and rider association groups.

Just want to stop anyone else getting stung and out of pocket.

Thanks guys

John

Hi Linton

Thanks mate, i was getting a bike transported from Sydney to Perth and ended up using BikeNut and they were fantastic, within a day they picked up the bike and were so professional to deal with. i will no better for next time.
Just wanted to let everyone know that there are people out there that do heaps of advertising and look very legit and even say they are associated with major organisations like the Motorcycle Council of Australia but they are still there to take your money for no return. In future if i cant pay with a credit card i won't be doing it.

Thanks again and warn anyone else thats need to transport a bike around the country.

John
