Airfreighting my bike from Kathmandu to Auckland New Zealand is going to cost $2000.
Calcutta is 1000kms away. Does anyone know of any agents where I can get a sea freight price from in Calcutta?
Here it is!
try to get in touch with them. i've managed to fly my bike from kolkata to bangkok (using Thai Cargo) with this firm:
contact person: Uttam Banerjee +91 99039 74171
mail: intl underscore cour underscore dept underscore ccu at gati dot com
i've paid something about 600 euro (january 2011) for the whole thing (was a 2,31 cubic meters and plus 500 kgs crate)
they were never been involved in shipping bike abroad before i step into their office. it takes me few days to put clearly in their mind what to do and how to do it, but it has worked out...
hope this helps you.
