Do you have that many bikes that you need a whole container? Only worth it if a 4x4 is in one with a little space to spare.. Cheaper to crate I think...

Well just checking as I've met several people who think they need to book a whole container for one bike... You didn't mention any detail...

Hi Paul,
we are currently working in the Pilbara and do to it possibly coming to an early finish we may head north instead of south America. we are on two bikes, are you solo or more?? I have never posted on HUBB before and don't know if I get an email to say you have replied, so you could send a comment on our blog www.rimorterra.wordpress.com (and see if we look too dodgy to travel with:-) or email andrew.fenn@hotmail.co.uk. we might be working in Melbourne if it fails here so later in the year could work for us!

Here is a recent (2012) travelers thoughts, which will show the company used:
From Darwin, Australia to Dilli, East Timor - September, 2012 | Horizons Unlimited

and the return is here and will also show the company used:
Apparently, the company Perkins used in the example above has been bought by Toll ..See this report here:
From Dili, East Timor to Darwin, Australia - February, 2013 | Horizons Unlimited

Hope this is of help.

Thanks Citsym, Yes I've read - the search bar is good isn't it ?

I'm not looking for info - just travellers.

Hello Andrew,

We are on two bikes, four or more makes a container a viable option. Six would be nice. I'll email you.
