Best way for Perth-Asia

Hello

I am looking to transport my bike from Perth (yes, it has to be Perth) to Asia.
The bike has swiss registration and is under the carnet de passage.
What is the best place in asia to ship to, regarding the least hassle by custom, local brocker etc. (3 days in ecuadore was o.k. but please not more)
I am thinking of Bangkok,Kuala Lumpur,Jakarta.
Since I will make a round trip in asia and I will have to ship to India eventually, maybe I could as well store the crate there.
What I have read so far is that Singapure should be avoided, true?
Does anyone know a good agent/brocker in Perth ?
Air/Sea/Ro-Ro?

thanks sushi

Hi Sushi,

Sad you're locked into Perth as there is a sea freight option from Darwin.

Yes, Singapore is a heap more expensive to ride out from as it includes additional insurances, temporary registrations, tolls and suchlike which include a visit to the Singapore AAA among other things.

I'd not miss Singapore to visit, but suggest do that while the bike is being shipped to Malaysia if possible.

With Myanmar opening up there is great hope that crossing there will open Central to South East asia to us overlanders, fingers crossed.

I shipped from Darwin to Singapore in 2010, if you'd like more info please send a PM and I'll be happy to tell more.

Cheers.
Frank.

Hello Frank
How much did you pay on fees,insurance etc. to drive out of Singapure?
Is it also possible to transport the bike from the harbor out to Malaysia without actualy register it in Singapure?
thanks sushi

Hi Sushi

i run a motorbike shipping business in Australia and can asist you if you need help arranging the export of the bike & clearance at destination

Ok before i can give you a quote, i need to know the following:
1/ what type of bike you have to work out what size crate you need and find out if you can supply crate
2/ can you deliver crate to container packing depot in Fremantle
3/ do you want to arrange own customs clearance at destination
4/ do you want air or sea export to malaysia for example (airfreight is genrally double the price of sea but lower destination handling charges)

Please feel free to email me on ivan@bikesabroad.com.au

Cheers
Ivan

Hi

I would be pleased to receive info regarding above as I'll probably be going in that direction next summer.
From what you say, it sounds easier/cheaper to ship to the other options above rather than Singapore??

By air to Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. By sea to Port Klang (near KL). Those are the destinations, that seem to get more positive than negative reports.

(but I'd go Darwin-East Timor then island-hop west until Sumatra, then ship to Malaysia, then do Thailand-Cambodia-Laos.)

Hello
I shipped with Ivan Smoljko (ivan@bikesabroad.com.au).
He was the only agent who would help me with the crate.
Everything was easy done by email, I droped off the bike at a warehouse (www.perthmotorcyclepickup.net.au) in Perth an they
crated the bike. I only had to remove the mirrors for the crating.
The crate was a original Harley-Davidson crate with a volume of almost 4 m3.
Ivan checked with his contacts in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur about the troubles and I decided to ship to Port Klang,Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Procedure in Port Klang to get the Bike:
Malaysia is very correct and I saw no long waiting between the steps but it still takes time.
If one knows what to do it's possible in 2 workingdays,
but since I didn't know all and because to public holidays it took me from Monday 8.00am to Friday 16.30pm....
This is how it would go:
1.Day:
Eary morning go to your shipping company and get the paper(several layers, top is pink) for the bike.
Go to the Malaysian Automobile Club to get the compulsory Insurance for Malaysia and Singapore.
You need also the round International Sticker from them, otherwise the custom will not fill out your CDP.
This will take several hours so by then you can call it a day.
Address:
Automobile Association of Malaysia
225, Block 4, Persiaran Sukan, Laman Seri Business Park, Section 13, 40100 Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
GPS: N 03.09231 E 101.54397
2.Day:
Take the KTM train from Kuala Lumpure to Port Klang, approx. 1 hour 4.40 Ringgit.
Take a taxi to the Custom House in Northport, 2-3km approx. 5-10 Ringgit.
GPS Custom House: N 03.01484 E 101.36586
At the Custom House:
1. Go up the stairs turn left, go straight to the office at the end of the corridor.
There they want a fotocopy of:
-your passport,
-the original registration,
-the insurance for Malaysia
And then they fill in the CDP only halfway.
Go to Northport, there is a small footpath between the Custom House an the Powerplant
which leads right to the entrance of the Northport.
There you get a visitor pass.
2.Go to the warehouse at Northport of your shipping company to pay the fees and prepare the inspection.
3.Go with the CDP to Northport to the Customoffice, located in warehouse B2, for an inspection of the Bike.
The Customofficer then signs on the back of the import part of the CDP.
4. Go back to the Custom House to clear the CDP.
5. After the CDP you need the clearence of the bike on the pink paper, as well at the Custom House opposite the CDP office.
6.Go back to warehouse B2 the office opposite the customoffice where you did the inspection.
They sign the pink paper and keep it.
7. Go to the warehouse to pick up your bike. They have to sign as well, now on the last page.
8. Drive to the entrance of Northport and get the last singnature at the gate.
9. Your free to go.
Sounds easy, doesn't it?
Total cost:
Export Clearance Perth aud$ 200.--
Crating and delivery to the port in Perth aud$ 440.--
Ocean freight Fremantle-Port Klang aud$ 333.--
Terminal handling Kuala Lumpure aud$ 213.35
Import service fee Kuala Lumpure aud$ 55.--
Northport fee Ringgit 214.--
Insurance and Sticker Ringgit 255.--
Total around aud$ 1400.--
Well the seafreight itself is cheap but the handling and crating is tree times more.
At the end the costs were similar to my previous Ro-Ro shippings Lörrach-Hamburg-Halifax and Veracruz-Guayaquil.
Darwin-Dili East Timor might by the better way but Darwin is in the middle of all the good places in Australia,
so eather you have to skip some of them or drive the boring Stuart Hwy back to Darwin.
