Experience with Getrouted

I send Quantas an E-mail to ask for a price,to get my Harley from Frankfurt to Melbourne,in a crate LxWxH=2,6mL 1,5mH 1,0mW 400kg weight.Price:2990€ and 150€ Handling and dangerous goods handeling in Fankfurt. Total cost 3140€ (4540$aus) one way. I think that the Getrouted price is good.

Chris/ Graham and Sue and all other wandering souls headed to OZ late 2010

I am shipping over (from US) with GetRrouted, loading two bikes (one for me one for wife) Sept. 20th. They say 5 weeks to get there m/l. So what are your time lines? Maybe we can get up a gang and get lost together.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
