New York Customs
I would like to send my BMW1150GS to New York City from Dubai, UAE, to travel North and South America. It is a South African Regestered bike with a valid Carnet. I would like to send it via sea freight in a wooden box. To find a shipping agent is easy, but to find a company to clear customs and transport the crate from the port to a friend's house in NYC, who is willing to store the bike untill we arrive is not that easy.
Does anyone know of such a person or agent who will be able to clear the bike through customs and transport the crate to a given adress? Or do I have to clear it myself as the owner of the bike? If so, then Air freight makes more sense.
Also, the person whos adress I have does not have space in a warehouse or a garage and the crate will be standing outside in his yard, if you know of someone who has a safe space under a roof for my trusty GS, please let me know.
