Shipping Bike From Ushuaia To USA - OR -???

I am in Ushaia and am seeking information on shipping directly out of Ushaia vs riding to BA. So far I think I have learned that you may need to pay for an complete 20 ft container that probably could hold at least 5 bikes.

With at least 3 bikes it may be cheaper than shipping out of BA by sea which I am told would be about $1100.00 to Miami plus some paperwork fees.

If you are going to be in Ushuaia in the next few days and are interested in sharing a container please let me know - OR - if you have specific knowledge about shipping back to the US from Argentina or Chile by SEA or Air please let me know.

Thanks and good riding to all!

Just Got Quote of $3000 USD For 20 ft Container

I just returned from Port Agents Tamic S.A. and soke to Marcelo who quoted me approximately $3000.00 USD for a complete 20 ft container from Ushuaia to Miami. Unless the actual cost increases it looks like 3 bikes would make it worthwhile and more would be even better.

Anyone who has recently shipped out of BA or Santiago let me know what it really costs there.


I have been told by knowledgable folks that if you do a little dissassembly and crate the bike smaller you can get air shipped out of BA for around $700. So if you have done it lately let me know, thanks.
