Used this company before and this time more than excellent.

1 asked a quote on the website

2 look on the website for a convienient date for your shipment and book it.

3 Got by email all the details what to do and when

4 Paid 1050 euro via banktransfer and got in return a referencenumber

5 bring the bike to the gate and hand over the referencenumber.

6 you get an entrancepass wich you allow to go  trough the gate and wait on the inside for someone to bring you to the parking spot and give that man the papers you got together with the entrancepass.

When you parked your bike you get one copy of the papers back and another pass wich you allow to get  trough the gate on your way out.

That's all. The advice wasto take away the licenceplate because some souvenirhunters like them, but I rivetted the plate. No change to take off.

On Halifax side get a moneyorder from the postoffice for the amount you have to pay to the agent (165 Can $) because it is not allowed to take cash.

With the paid stamp on you paper go to customs, Get a stamp over there when you bike is cleared. Go to the harbour and collect the bike.

We stayed in Dartmouth oceanview hotel on walking discance of the ferry.

When you disembark the ferry on Halifax side, 4 min walking disdance to the right, Theres is the agents office.

From agentsoffice to customs 10 min walk .

All very close, thats why we took Halifax for a second time to start a trip.

All together  1050 euro oceanpassage and harbourdues Bremerhaven site and 165 can $ on Canadian side.

We travelled with carnet, not necessary for canada and us but use it for a folling trip through SE Asia. When you do not have this, 100 euro is added to clear the bike from Bremerhavensite
