    Quad bike transport Dunedin-Chch

    Im looking at buying a quad bike from down south (Dunedin) and need to get it to Chch, whats the best way to go about this? I would go down and grab it myself but hard to find the time and having trouble driving a manual (my ute) at the moment. Any advice appreciated

    When would it need to be picked up? A mate is talking of coming down before we start calving. He might be able to get it back to methven. Possibly.....
    Otherwise I noticed Quigley transport are carting balage down to otago.

    Some pesties need dealing with on a property. Maybe a deer or pig as well.

    Besides, one of my first farm experiences was spending a couple of weeks of a school holiday on a farm up there. A big chunk of the time was grubbing thistles. Helped out with killing butchering a ewe (think the aim was to gross me out but didn't work). Brother of the guy that used to manage the farm where Ryan is currently working.

    I got a bike up from Dunedin to Otorohanga with Freightlines last week. Cost $300. And no mucking around. Was surprised how cheap it was.
