Transport company in Auckland?

Hi,

I need to get my bike transported from Auckland centre to the airport.
Does anyone know a good and cheap company who can do this?
I cannot ride my bike because all fuel have been drained from the bike due to oncoming shipment to US.

Hi Pete,

I asked biketranz, price was ok(ish), but the problem is that I cannot get in to a car while transporting the bike such a short distance…

Hi Marlborouglad,

Cannot take the risk that airline/customs will sniff the tank…
Tank will be drained and washed with white alcohol. Reason for this is to get it to the plain without "hazardous material" sticker (transportation will cost much more if they find out that it smells fuel)…

This will not be the first time that trailer has carted a dead bavarian tractor, although I will admit this one is just resting.
