Should still be about £680.00 from Southampton and about CAN$120.00 to get it out in Halifax. Debbie at the Southampton office is very good with bikers and you can get a bus from outside the Int Hostel in Halifax almost to the autopark.

So, about 100GBP less than air freight ?

If the OP is in need of the bike to be there at the start f the trip, I'd suggest flying it.

Chris,
Think your edit may be missing a "w" if the email address is for WW in Southampton.
blahblah.blah@2wglobal.com

I'd like to rescind the suggestion about flying :-) , the cost is getting silly. I'll be shipping myself in less than 3 months.

So, any info/contacts about getting the bikes out of the port and places to stay will be useful as we are on a tight schedule time wise.

I normally deal with the airport paperwork myself, but I gather sea freight is not as straight forward ?
