shipping bike from SA

Anyone has any experience with shipping his bike from South Africa to Europe? (preferably Holland) i emailed some shipping agencies but they don’t reply. Probably because I want to ship just 2 bikes instead of several containers full. Any help or pointers will be appreciated.

Shipping

Hi,

I was shipping 2 bikes early last year up to Germany from Durban. It was around 500 Euro on the african side.

I would have two KTM refund crates in Port Shepstone if you need some. Or end of Oktober I should have normal crates.

regards

Thomas
