Shipping Bikes From South to North America
I'm pretty new to the HUBB so maybe I'm just not using it correctly. However, I have looked for recent information on shipping bikes from South America to North America and there is nothing - all the stuff I found is from '08. Lots of posts on selling and buying bikes but not on sending.
I'm going to be finishing up my trip here in a few months. Originally I had planned on selling my 07 KLR but from the people I have met on the road who have sold their bikes the prices are ridiculous... I don't think it's even worth it to sell for 2,000 unless shipping is super expensive.
So, now I'm thinking of plan B because I would be happier with my bike that with 2,000 dollars. I live on the west coast so I am assuming that finishing up on the Pacific coast of the continent will make things easier and cheaper. Has any one shipped their bike from Santiago or Valparaiso to the west coast of the US lately? Also, I have heard that it may be easier to and cheaper to ship to Canada than the US - I think I "heard" this on Facebook so please don't quote me:-) Any thoughts on that?
Also, any shipping advice in general would be helpful - not only to me but to folks who do this trip soon after me. Thanks in advance.
