Air ship to US from Panama or Costa Rica

Hi to Members,

I am interested in finding out the information about air shipping a motorcycle back to California, US from Panama or Costa Rica. Where can I find this information ? I don't speak nor understand their language.

Any advise will be appreciated,

Well I am in the middle of shipping my bike from panama to canada so I can give you a little help. I am using DHL global forwarding. Expensive, very expensive but I broke a bone in my foot so my insurance pays for it so I can't complain.

The contact person is Ingrid and her # is (507) 290 8900

The funny thing about this is they are using Fed-ex to ship my bike and when I called Fed-ex they said they don't ship bikes so to try and save money I would try Fed-ex first and don't take no for an answer.

If that dosn't work DHL will do it all for you and Ingrid speaks excellent english, although it will take 2 or 3 days to do all the paper work.
