Your problem is the "hold it till I arive" bit. Basicly if I understand correctly - clearing customs for you and then storing the bike for you ... that will be expensive. It is much cheaper if you are there when this is done. And mush less risk for the clearence people - anything illegal is your problem .. they don't get involved if any illeage drugs (for example) are found ...
Having said all that ... what time frame are you talking about? If it is less than a week I would not talk to them about it ... a sudden delay is much better - they will cope with that ... but asking them to plan for it adds too much to the work load? Just see if you can find someonme to act as your agent in clearing the bike first, storage latter?
Personaly I'd avoid the storage thing .. you'll find stuff to do while you wait for teh bike to clear.
