NEED A RIDER TO BRING BACK BIKE - 7 MILES

#1 Post by alptrans » Sat Oct 24, 2020 4:14 pm

Hello all,

Anyone ready to help please?
I had a fall and I am incapacitated for the next few weeks (dislocated an elbow!).

The bike has nothing wrong at all and is on a car park safe for now. But I would need to get it back to my garage about 7 miles from Sutton to Battersea asap.
I can take the rider there and can follow me back. Anyone, please?

Thanks for any message!

Can't help I'm afraid (live in Sheffield) but wouldn't a man with a van (and a ramp) be an alternative solution?

Hi fella, we use Gavin at RCL Transport. Probably cost you £60 and saves the grief of the bike being tampered with / nicked.

Hi!
Thanks! I use a man and a van specialised in transporting bikes etc : MTM trans Ltd. He did a good job and park it well inside the garage! Nice job!
