Any advice on fly or ship bike (& me!) from Halifax, Canada to England

Hi! With continued fortune, I'm finishing a RTW in Halifax, East Canada at the beginning of Sept 08, and need to rush back to London for the dreaded office job awaiting.
If anyone knows of flight or shipping options and contacts i would be incredibly grateful.

thanks!

Welcome Mike D.

Try International motorcycle shipping, International motorcycle transport, motorcycle shipping Europe and shipping motorcycle to Europe.

Send me a PM with your email I will check another source tomorrow. I know it might be easier to ship from Montreal but the distance back may not be worth it unless you need a pint or two on Peel Street.

Also contact the Halifax HU Community. Go to left of this page and click on Tan or orange tab stating Community. Follow prompts.

Be mindful of the Alaska weather and do you need assistance there ?

Welcome to the HU and nice blog.

Mike - I shipped my bike, by transatlantic ferry, with Wallenius Wilhelmsen, from Southampton to Halifax in June last year ('07). Then we flew back to London, from Toronto, with Air Transat a couple of months ago (end of May '08). Lemme know if you need any more info about these transport methods and carriers.

Cheers

KEITH
