Chile:

airfreigt + agent total 1753 us$

julio is a great guy.
he has answerd every (about 15-20) email within a few hours.
when it came to the size of the bike he always said "dont worry about size".
i had an offer for my estimated size but at the end they take the actual messure of the palet/crate, wich is to big.
we arranged a prize somewhere in between my estimated size and the actual crate size.

i was very happy with julio and can only recomend him.

Sydney:

aus$
no agent is needed.
Fee Airport: 165.-
inspection quarantene 165.-
transport truck airport-quarantene station: 100.-
public transport/taxi: 65.-
total 495.-

unfortunatly i assumed that airfreight is easyer and cheaper in handling
at the destination than seafreight.
flying to sydney is to expensive, look for a cheaper airport.

custom is right at the airport.
quarantene control in sydney:
at AQIS( 1 crewe place rosebery nsw 2018) you have to make the paperwork.
then the bike has to be transported to a place outside the airport to open the crate.
i went to ANJ (1 bolton street sydenham nsw 2039)

they checked the bike briefly for soil.
i asked what might happen if they find soil.
"well then it gets cleand with highpressure water...."
the gas chamber will only be used when they find insects.
and i spend 2 days cleaning the bike ....
I guess there are too many horror stories in the net, about that the bike has to be cleaner than new and so on, but its up to you!

have fun
