Export Air (based near the Perth International Airport) were great. Tim Hawdon organised everything except crating, which I had done by the local KTM dealer (Causeway KTM - contact Ram Wertheim +61 8 9355 0500). Very professional service all round.

On the South African side Export Air had recommended that I use a company called U-bag (Contact: Justus Britz, Tel: +27 11 394 5411, based in Kempton Park, Jhb), ) to do the custom clearance for me. They too were great and there were no issues. It cost me R1000.00 (approx AUD$ 120.00) for the custom clearance services of U-Bag. I believe that U-Bag also deal with international motorcycle freighting out of Johannesburg.
