Hello All,

Can anyone recommend and give me the details of a decent shipper in KL, other than the one here on HU, which I cannot get in contact with.

here´s 1 suggestion

.....But do note that I´ve never dealt with these guys, I only got this info from a German motorcyclist, that I met in Penang a few days ago. So I cannot really recommend them, Im only passing to you their contact adress. The German guy had been trying to find freight back to Europe, and said he was probably going to use this.

Agility /
Steven Soo
41 Jalan Cungah
42000 Port Kelang, Selangor
ssoo *AATT** agilitylogistics **DDOOTT** com
tel. (603) 3168 5859

And the quoted price for the German´s KLR650 was I think somewhere around 1600 RM from Pt.Klang to Hamburg, and he said it was "all included", but I do not know, if there are still some hidden charges. That price, if its all included, doesnt sound too bad to me. He said he´d requested also from Pt. Klang to Chennai, and the price would´ve been nearly the same! With seafreight the distance doesnt seem to matter that much I guess...

Please do keep in mind, that I´m not recommending them, since I have no personal experience of them.
