Hydralift Motorcycle Carrier

I am looking for a motorcycle lift which is made by Hydralift in the USA, the 'local' UK agent is in Emmendingen, Germany.

Both Hydralift and their agent will ship to the UK but the cost is eye watering $4000+ not including shipping $1000+ Crate and various other bits.

Does anyone know who/where to ask/look re a secondhand one, have tried Google several times but no hits in the UK.
I did respond to 2 in the USA from Google but I did not recieve any reply

I have also posted on other MH sites

Save yourself a lot of time and money. Buy or make a dual purpose tow dolly where the dolly has a platform on the front of it to hold the bike. With the lift if you don't have a dual axle or less than a 10' over hang you will bounce all the way down the road....

You may not get very far trying to buy one from the US on the internet. There are so many scams involving Nigerians or whomever "buying" products advertised in the US that many people just don't consider an offer credible.

I thought you might call the factory to see if they would sell direct to you and ship to the UK, but their web site "contact us" link doesn't work and there is no reference to where they are or contact numbers.

It's not a Hydra Lift but I used to have an electrically driven Overbilt lift and liked it. You might call Art at Overbilt. You can get their number from Overbilt Lifts motorcycle lifts, overbuilt lifts. Welding in the Hudson Valley..

Thanks for your replies, I do not wish to tow indeed the coach is fitted with an A frame & has a Brake Buddy set up too.
Hydralift will export to me but I was trying to find a cheaper alternative way of obtaining a Hydralift unit, such as secondhand.
Had a look at the Overbilt and the Cruiserlift but would like to go for the Hydralift if I can do it.

I have a couple of enquirys with UK tail lift manufacturers to ask if they can provide a motorcycle lift using the technology for lifting loads to the rear of Trucks.

Kind Regards again
