The Challenge

"In June 2013 arranged through Taurus Logistics to ship my Ducati from Brisbane to Wellington"

The Solution

Using our professional packing team in Brisbane, we packed this bike for consolidation in a part container load, the crate ensured no other cargo damaged the motorbike.

They arranged all relevant details and for it to also be crated, the crating company I consider did an exceptional piece of workmanship and I was more than happy with the due care taken

The Result

I was more than happy with the due care taken, I have no hesitation in recommending Taurus or companies they organise to cater for any shipping requirements and am only to pleased to vouch for them...

The Challenge

A father and son wanted to import a pair of Harley Davidson’s Road Kings from the US to Wellington.

The Solution

To give the best price and the best care for these bikes, we loading in our special motorcycle consolidation container. Our crack team of packers in Charleston, SC, lovingly packed these two Road Kings with other motorcycles heading to New Zealand.

All questions were answered quickly and the paperwork to sign was simple and straight forward, which helped to speed things up and was less stressful.”

The Result

You and Hayley were most helpful… And I would have no problem using Taurus again or recommending you to others.

Harley Davidson road king trip to NZ

...their service to me was instant

I chose Taurus, as their service to me was instant. They supplied me with all the obligations I had to meet and the best possible way to import my Harley Davidson from Australia to NZ and back again. The service from all involved at Taurus was excellent, NZ & Australia. Continue Reading

The Challenge

Mike didn't have much time, and need to quickly send his Harley Davidson to New Zealand for a holiday, and then back again to Perth. This needed to arrive perfectly with his flights, and also avoid complications with taxes, and on road costs.

I gave short notice and still all the time frames were met.

The Solution

We recommend shipping on a ATA Carnet, which is like a passport for your bike. This meant on arrival no GST to pay, and he could drive on New Zealand roads using his Australian rego.

The Result

Bike was crated so it had no chance of damage. Thanks to everyone at Taurus, both sides of the Tasman for going that little bit further, excellent job.

Ducati shipped from Singapore

On time and in perfect condition

Certainly a different approach was taken by others, who required all my details before being prepared to at least provide an estimate. Needless to say the bike arrived on time, in the same condition it left in, and I have no reservation recommending Taurus Logistics to anyone requiring their services." Continue Reading

The Challenge

The motorbike was in storage in Singapore for a number of years, my client was living in Thailand, and wanted it shipped to New Zealand.

I asked for quotes, and received a prompt efficient quote from Lisa, at Taurus Logistics, as well as a request for additional information, should I choose to proceed. Certainly a different approach was taken by others, who required all my details before being prepared to at least provide an estimate.”

The Solution

Having never used such services before, I was certainly naive in the whole process, and needed a lot more hand holding than would be the norm, however the service provided by Taurus was exemplary. From explaining the process, to investigating options in regards to Customs fees and taxes, as well as constant prompt and efficient communications. They even went so far as to provide photos of the bike as it was being packaged etc.

The Result

What sticks in mind the most however, having now completed the whole process, was what happened after I had settled the bill (which came in as quoted). Having completed the process, I subsequently found out I needed the original shipping documents, to resolve the deregistration process at the point of origin. At this point I just knew I was in for the feared “red tape nightmare”, but I sent Lisa an email anyway, with the faintest of hope, and yet to my surprise, she promptly informed me this would be no problem, and went so far as to have the documents delivered where I needed them to be, on my behalf.

Service, Service, and even after the fact, still Service.”

vintage Yamaha xs650

..an excellent job of organising things

I chose Taurus to import my vintage Yamaha xs650 motorcycle from the UK to Australia in March this year. They did an excellent job of organising things at both ends. Continue Reading

The Challenge

To ship this classic vintage Yamaha motorcycle from the UK to Sydney

The Solution

Build a custom timber crate, which was certified timber to comply with Australian requirements. Then pack, ship, and take care of all the AQIS and Customs requirements on arrival.

I was informed of the ship's name that was carrying the bike and when it was due to depart/arrive and was able to track the ship a lot of the way here using the information Taurus gave me.

The Result

Their service was efficient and courteous at all times and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to import a motorcycle from overseas.
