15. How are bikes packed?

For all bikes sent in containers we will dismantle expensive parts or parts that pose a threat to other bikes while in transit. Eg. Winkers, mufflers and steps & Mirrors. We also wrap all parts that are pulled off the bike in bubble wrap and label each one with the packing number for that bike. Bikes are then wrapped with thick blankets and held in position in the container by wood. Spectrum WILL pack two floors in the containers. This increases the amount of bikes you can export in each container. Spectrum takes pride in the way we pack our containers. We feel that you will not find a better company for packing your bikes anywhere in the world.
