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!
