Alaska or Canada (BC) to Australia?

I've juast done a quick search here and have found very little information. Has anyone actually shipped from Alaska or Vancouver to Australia (East Coast)?

Any leads would be useful. I have one for Vancouver which I shall follow up but Alaska anyone?

Other than that does anyone want to buy a very loved KLR650C in UK plates in Alaska or Canada in about August/September? I'll obviously post this in the for sale bit as well.

Thanks,
Michelle

I'm going from Melbourne to California, so ne help from me. If I was on a newer bike, I'd probably sell it and buy one on the next continent.

My experience is in the shipping section of HU (Brisbane to Vancouver) from when I did the shipping thing in Sept last year. That should at least give you an idea.

Melbourne-Vancouver-Melbourne

We shipped 8 BMWs from Melb-Vancouver and return in 2005, in one container. No problems.

However, I do believe that it is possible to ship just one bike through the same agents that we used, on a "Less-than-Full-Load" basis. This is sea freight, of course. Shipping time was about 5.5 weeks, from memory.

Vancouver agent is:
Adanac International Forwarders Ltd
125, 6086 Russ Baker Way, Richmond BC V7B 1B4

Contact is the Vice President - Craig McKay.
Tel: 604 273 8611
email: cmckay at wirbc.com

If you want to investigate this further, PM me and I'll give you the Melbourne agent's details, when I find them.
