Container space Germany to Durban

Hi,

looks like I have some container space to offer. I want to ship some bikes down from 36304 Alsfeld in Germany to Durban. You could ship your bikes with. The cost will be 500 Euro for a bike in a crate not bigger than 2m³. Bikes will be stored for you at my house in Port Shepstone and wait there for your arrival.

I also can assist to import your bike to South Africa an licence it here, so you need no carnet. With a south african logbook you make it at least to Tanzania without any problems.

regards

Thomas
