shipping bike from Nepal

Hey guys here is some information of airfreight our bike from Nepal.

After roaming around for quote in Thamel we decided to do it with Eagle Export(eagleandsunnepal@gmail.com).His main argument was hardly beatable price.No other company give us such a quote.Not only shipping he also guide us the places to visit.

First day Suraj(),owner of the company came in our hotel with his carpenter,measure bike and gave order for crate..Second day we went to airport to fixed bike in crate.It takes 2-3 hours.First, we have to do is front wheel off ,resemble the tire air pressure approxmitely (15 to 20%)Disconnect the battery, and empty the tank (only in reserve) because Bike is represented as Dangerous Goods.All process straight forward.No problem.

One important information,they will charge by Real weight or volumetric weight whichever is higher.

(length x width x height)
_____________________= Volumetric weight in Kgs.
6000


Ride safe.

Hey Django!

I've actually come from Bangkok.. I'm heading west towards the UK!
Enjoy Thailand and Sth East Asia!.. so much easier as far as paperwork goes OHMYGOSH

My current plan is to go from Nepal to India to Pakistan and then north to China and into the stans... am really not sure what I'll be doing if the problems in northern Pakistan are still present in 5 weeks or so.. trying to work some ideas out at the moment..

So far I'm thinking..
..into Pakistan and head west into Iran (something I didn't really want to do)
..into India and then down to Mumbai and ship out to Iran or UAE or Turkey
...... not sure lol

Cheers,
Drew

Thanks for that Django. If I could be a bit more nosey and ask what it cost to fly yourself to Bangkok from Kathmandu? I think it is useful so that people can make a cost comparison between freighting from Nepal against riding through China. Thanks again.

Exceptional service

Hi

We have also just flown our bikes from Nepal to Thailand using Eagle Export. Right from the first day we got there, they were fantastic. Before the first day was up they had the bikes measured, next day the crates were done. Next day was shipping, and we were in Thailand the day after that. The crates were far superior to what we had used going from Egypt to Istanbul, and about half the price when it came to the final volumetric weight compared to that previous shipping. Get in touch with Mr Suraj Dhakal if you are needing to do any shipping from Kathmandu, we couldn't have had a better experience!
