I had to ship my car + my bike since I gave up my household in Amman, Jordan. At that time Syria was already in troubles and not 'crossable' so the only choice was through Israel back to Europe. Crossing from Jordan to Israel no problem but I had to go twice - one time with one vehicel, since I was traveling alone and Jordan only permits one foreign vehicle per foreign opperson. But they had no record that I had actually two vehicles on my name! Just had to show up with one at a time at the border.

Rosenfeld is only shipper from/to Israel, and not really cheap. But friendly staff and relatively fast process.

Problems: Haifa port authorities charge as they like, since I found a co-traveler from Israel who had his way with the female Israeli customs officers, I paid less. Otherwise get ready to negotiate.

I had to fly from Israel to Greece and drive down to the port of Lavrio to get my car and bike, since the boat does not accept passengers (I read it did so in the past). Greek side was very easy and fast, just another 80 Euro for the port.
