SQL Server: Speeding up slow large inserts

When doing a large / bulk insert I normally disable all indexes:
ALTER INDEX ALL ON [TABLE] DISABLE

Often there maybe be primary keys etc that need to be enabled, enable only those that you need via:
ALTER INDEX [PK_NAME] ON [TABLE] REBUILD

Once the insert is complete simply rebuild all the indexes via:
ALTER INDEX ALL ON [TABLE] REBUILD
