Get Routed offer a range of motorcycling shipping services, allowing motorcyclists to have their motorcycle transported for the ultimate two wheeled travel experience, including to locations such as United Kingdom, Spain, Greece, the Isle of Man and New Zealand.
Each year Get Routed organise IoM TT experiences for Aussie and Kiwi riders, with strictly limited spaces available for the 2020 event, and they also have pre-booked accommodation for the TT fortnight. There’s also space for those happy to take a tent and camp out, as an additional option, that Get Routed can also help organise.
Get Routed also book ferry tickets from Liverpool or Heysham across to the Isle of Man each year far in advance, that can be used by their customers. This is far more important than you might think, as IOM TT ferry tickets can sell out in minutes and are generally booked out over 12 months in advance and cost over $500 AUD.
Of course if you take your own bike you not only get to the lap the TT course, and visit all corners of what is quite a beautiful island under your own steam and in your own time, you can also then extend your holiday and ride throughout the UK or continue over to Europe.
With Get Routed your bike can stay in Europe for a couple of months before being shipped back to Australia, and there are no extra charges for extending your stay in Europe and undertaking your own tour, in your own time. Perhaps even take in a round of MotoGP while you are on the European mainland.
Here’s the full scoop from Dave of Get Routed, with contact details for those interested. With strictly limited spaces each year it’s worth getting in quick.
“I have been coming to the TT since 1983 and started shipping motorcycles to UK and Europe since 2001 and over that time have transported almost 3000 motorcycles to the UK and other European destinations. Of course we also provide shipping services across the Tasman for those riders wanting to tour New Zealand on their own motorcycle.
“I also book plenty of accommodation on the Isle of Man each year for the TT fortnight, with quality options in the beautiful seaside towns of Port Erin and Port Mary. Including a self contained fully restored stone farm cottage built in 1850.
“This accommodation is not available to people who don’t want to take a bike to the TT. The accommodation and ferry tickets are only available to those who want bikes shipped to the UK and back, from either Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne. Of course for those wanting to take a tent and camp out at one of the many IoM camp sites I can also help facilitate this.
“Laps of the TT Mountain Course circuit during open road times across the TT fortnight is not difficult.
“Bikes are generally loaded in Australia towards the end of February and available for collection in Felixstowe, Suffolk, UK towards the end of April. Your motorcycle luggage can also be transported in the container ready for your collection with your motorcycle.”
How much does this type of service cost?
The 2020 and 2021 Isle of Man TT motorcycle shipping and accommodation package, which includes ferry tickets for you and your motorcycle across the Irish Sea, and 14-nights quality lodgings on the Isle of Man, sells for $7436. Spaces are always limited thus advance bookings are thoroughly recommended.
