I just got back an amount for the shipping per motorcycle. No details about, how the price was calculated or which services are included. No answere to the question about the procedure.
Overall very poor compared to a dozend other replys from air- and sea freighters.
The price for Quantas was bad, too: 2,400 NZD + costs in AUS per bike.
For the same bike messures Greenfright sent an offer of 1,626 NZD + costs in AUS.
On the negative side I have to say, that the email conversation with Steve Spector (Greenfright) wasn´t very professional at times. But at least he put up a proper offer.
Third offer (and quickest one) was by Air New Zealand: 3.309 NZD per bike.
If you have time to go by ship try this: Kathy Speck (Mondiale). Very professional + answeres all questions in time and to my full satisfaction.
The offer was by far the cheapest!
