Excellent service. Air from Bogota to Miami. Truck from Miami to Seattle. Air and truck was done by Lyncargo. I used my own trailer to haul bike from Seattle to my home in Vancouver. Steps I went through:

Ahead of time email to Veronica pdf of registration, passport and temporary import document that you received when entering Colombia . Stay at hotel in Bogota near her office, near airport for 2 or 3 nights, Hotel Munza. Carrera 103 No. 24F-22. Park bike in hotel lobby. First day 3 hours at her office doing paperwork Calle 24 No. 95A-80 Office 302, 15 minute walk from hotel. Their helper gave me lift back to hotel and led me with bike to car wash where bike got washed. Must be clean. Then helper led me to crating shop where it was left for crating. Walked back to hotel 15 minutes. Second day lift back to crating shop on helpers moto where bike was already crated in hand made wooden crate. Rode in truck to shipping warehouse near airport where helper and assistant did paperwork in customs and shipment offices 4 hours. Signed papers then said goodbye and took free airport bus from customs office to catch my 2:30 pm Air Canada flight to Vancouver. Normally takes 2-3 full days for shipping arrangements. They rushed things for me and got it done in a day and a half. 1 week later I drove from Vancouver to Seattle with bike trailer and picked up bike at Fortward Air 6531 South 219 Street in city of Kent.  10 minutes later I received paperwork from Forward Air and drove to US Customs 15 minutes away at 7 South Nevada Street Seattle 98134. They did 30 minutes of paperwork. Drove back to Forward Air. Got bike. Dissambled wood crate at Forward Air and loaded wood into my van. Loaded bike onto trailer. Disposed of wood at Ferndale dump near Bellingham $20. No problems at border into Canada.
