I checked out a number of agents in Jakarta but MSA Kargo was responsive and relatively affordable. They handled the process well. It wasn't a bargain and they are clearly trying to make good money out if out of it but they were professional and friendly.

Shipping by air is expensive in any event at the moment so I was not surprised at the cost. Get the volumetric weight down as much as possible and make sure you agree on that weight. Tiurma was honest about the process.

In the end my bike was delayed with more than a week but that was Qantas' fault. It was stuck in Sydney somehow and the idiots did not send it to Perth despite me chasing by phone several times a day.
