Motorcycle Shipping Crate Source

It's an odd question, but does anyone know where I can get a crate for a bike? I've seen them online for about $500-$600 dollars. It will be getting sent by air to Bahrain.

I should have my work contract by the end of the month and when I'm home in April I'll put some tires on it, box it up and send it.

Thanks

Let the freight company take responsibility for it. I ship stuff quite a bit, and packaging is always a reason for a freight company to dispute a claim. Let them crate it, ideally with your presences to take pictures.

I'll doublecheck, but I don't think we have motorcycle containers in our company. It is getting shipped via our aircraft as overflow for free. It's on me to get it boxed.

Try a dealer, they may have crates from new bikes they could give you, or sell you.
