The London office confirmed there is a form to be filled in which they are going to fax a copy the Manchester office as a guide.

When I deliver the bike(s) for transportation they will sit down and help me fill all the forms in.

Looks a pretty good operation, we will fly the bikes out and send them back by sea to keep costs down.

Right, off to start a thread to see if anyone else has dealt with James Cargo

The main thing that seems to make US customs happy from what I have read is if you have the invoice for when you bought the bike as well as the V5.

You can get a quote from James Cargo, but mine is coming out as 948ukp which includes all charges, and 1.5% insurance (based on bike being worth 2k). They also crate the bike for you.
