When the hammer strikes: Auction options with Shippio


When the hammer strikes at many auctions, there is a sense of triumph and euphoria that you have outbid your nearest rival, whether they were on the phone, online, or even in the same auction hall. Here at Shippio we embrace this, and the next question on our mind is: to ship or not to ship?

For customers who do not live in the UK, our one stop shop approach means you do not have to look any further. We are able to offer a complete package from collection and processing at the auction hall (once payment has been made in full to the auctioneer), to then be brought back to our depot to be prepared for export.

With movements across the continent to mainland Europe, your new purchase is delivered within a fully enclosed motorcycle haulage vehicle whilst fully insured.

For movements outside the EU, we offer a complete package where your vehicle is fully packed and can be either shipped or flown to the customer’s port or airport of choice.

If you would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Shippio declared award Finalists for ‘going the extra mile’

Shippio Car & Motorcycle Shipping declared finalists at the 2016 BIFA Freight Service Awards for going the ‘extra mile’

The British Institute of Freight Association (BIFA) freight service awards are now in their 28th year. The awards encourage and reward high standards and professionalism. They represent the ultimate recognition of special achievements in different sectors of the industry.

the industries most coveted awards…

Shippio Car & Motorcycle Shipping was instrumental in the movement of the largest collection of Brough Motorcycles in the world, from Robert White in Dorset to Jay Leno in the USA. The high value, delicate nature and cultural importance of the shipment involved complex logistics.

The seller was very sadly diagnosed with terminal cancer and his treatment was provided by Poole hospital trust. Mr White was very impressed by the care and treatment he received from the trust. So much so that he pledged the GBP 3.5 million generated from the sale of the motorcycle collection to develop their cancer facilities. Communication was key to ensure the aims of the seller, purchaser and Poole Hospital Trust were all achieved.

The seller was reassured by the knowledge that the motorcycles arrived safely with the buyer and that Poole Hospital trust received their vital funding.

Shippio have been judged by the to meet the award criteria of ‘innovation’ and/or ‘customer care’ by adding value and exceeding their customer’s expectations. The Shippio team will be travelling to London in January for the awards ceremony and the announcement of the category winner.

Wish us luck!
