shipping bikes

I would send this guy a email as he sends bikes back and forth each year. I have no connection to him but I rented from him in Germany and I think he can help you.

I once flew my bike from Gatwick to Vancouver by Air Transat in 2002, then back from Toronto to Gatwick. Yes it was expensive but I can put you in touch with the shippers if you change your mind.

In that case have you tried Wallenius Wilhelmsen Line? They have an office here in Southampton (0230-637233) and I used them in 2006 to ship my bike to Newark NJ. I believe they not only sail to the East Coast but also the west too. I dealt with Tony White then.

Oops, I've just found their New Jersey details -

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics
Building 340, Distribution Street
Port Newark NJ 07114

I believe that Wallenius Wilhelmsen ship to Seattle, I'm not sure that they go as far as Vancouver. I was planning a transamerica bike ride a few years ago (Sadly, technically still in the planning stage). At the time Wallenius Wilhelmsen had regular shipping that went down the East Coast and then up the West Coast to LA and sometimes (but not always) onwards to Seattle.
