Wish i had seen this thread earlier, did a quick search for transport guys and got Peter's number on one thread saying hes"s a good oke, What a Fuckup, my stuff came a day and half late, couldn't get hold of him for two days.... still got a bitter taste in my mouth. I will not recomend him to anyone

What you guys must understand, and this is the main reason why I dont do bikes for WD members anymore.

A vehicle needs to get full. If he charges say R2000 from JHB to lets say PE, he needs at least 8 bikes.
If it gets to departure time, and only has 4 bikes, not worth it to drive down for free then.
Yes, maybe a call to the customer wold be great, I normally do so.

So if its a day or two late, shut up. Did the world end because you only received your bike 2 days later??

If your bike arrives here and its fucked, then complain.

The problem with them and other bike transporters is they don't communicate with the customer and promise the world and deliver fuck all, is that so much to ask for?

Anyway, jou diens kak en fokken duur, net om te betaal vir Hilux tappit kak.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Had bad experience with Mr Baker. Picked up bike from George for me. Loaded it on back of bakkie filthy when I did receive it a few days late and then demanded extra payment for loose parts which I specified when requesting transport.

Also had zero communication from him.

I have transported a good few bikes around the country in the past few years

I have used almost all the bike couriers - they are all kak

Now I only use TIME FREIGHT depot to depot - costs just over a R1000 to move bike between JHB / PTA to CPT

I deliver / collect the bikes to / from the depot in Montague Gardens Cape Town

I strap the bike down on a pallet myself to make sure it is going nowhere.

Takes 3 days maximum from anywhere to anywhere

And you get a tracking waybill number so you can follow the progress of the bike and know exactly where it is

Have used Peter twice,
KDX 200 took 2 months from PMB to PTA, very bad communication and was a rondfok for the seller. Lots of empty promises for "next week", dont answer phone, sms's, emails etc.
Other time was a DR frame from cape, same story. AFter innitially giving a discount because its only the chassis, I had to pay full amount on delivery. took a long time...

When my 650R was sold the buyer used him as well. After a lot of hassles and threats Peter eventually sub-contracted to a different company.

If you have a masochistic streak, use this courier.

I don't have a problem paying, this was two small fairings that had to go on the bike i was selling,phoned him on thursday, he told me the stuff would be in Jhb on friday( left on wednesday) which gives me enough time to fit and deliver the bike to new owner on saturday. Friday afternoon his phone rang twice then went off the whole weekend. My goods arrived saturday afternoon from Harrismith. Could only finish the bike and had someone deliver the bike for me on monday at extra cost.He phoned my boet and demanded payment immediately.

Our 3rd AMAGEZA bike left JHB with Time Freight on Tuesday - today is Thursday and I will collect at Cape Town depot this afternoon

COST an unbelievable R884

Great service and even better price

I wish that I had found this thread before handing over R3800 to Peter Baker at www.bike-freight-transport.co.za.

My new (to me) bike took 6 weeks to arrive in Cape Town from Nelspruit. I seller almost sold it to someone else after Peter Baker took more than 3 weeks just to collect it from the seller and didn't keep an appointment that he made to collect the bike.

Now, 6 weeks later, I have just received my bike.

I called Peter several times. Never once got an apology for all his broken promises, and the hours of my time, the seller's time and my brother's time (who was receiving the bike for me) that he wasted by not delivering when he said that he would over and over again.

I don't think I've ever spoken to someone so unaccountable or with so little concern for his customers.

They are all shit.

If you dont like aggrevation, hook up your trailer, go on a road trip and pick it up yourself. I will rather spend the extra money and get my bike on my own terms.

Wonder if it was him that had to transport by crashed AT down from the EC
These guys were extra special. We got updates via sms
Bike collected. bike loaded. Truck on the way etc
Last one was they are just outside Paarl and will deliver the bike the next morning at Honda.

Nothing arrived the next day. Then the salvage company in the EC called and asked, when are they collecting the bike? Its still standing there

To this day we have no idea what they apparently collected if at all  :eek7:

Same as Justin

Time Freight Depot - depot is cheap and reliable.

Only ball ache is to go and strap the bike down on a pellet at the depot but then I know exactly how its done and that it was done properly.

Keep in mind you have to drain the feul also they check at the depot to make sure tank is empty.
DO NOT FOLLOW WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD.
GO INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL.
