Better to fly or ship bikes Korea to Malaysia?
We are in Korea with 2 bikes. Wendy Choi is worried we will have problems with customs in Malaysia. We have carnets. We will either fly bikes to Kuala Lumpur or ship to Port Klang. She says it is much cheaper by sea - we await quotation from her. She says it takes 2 weeks by sea which is ok by us. 2 small bikes will be in one crate (no problem with this so far!)
1. Is Port Klang customs ok or difficult if you have a carnet?
2. Is it expensive to get out of customs?
3. Is Kuala Lumpur airport difficult with carnet?
4. Do we need an agent at airport or port to get the bikes out or can we do
it on our own? We have always done it on our own before.
She says we can leave all our Korean paperwork with her (yellow sticker etc) and she will clear Korean customs without us. She says it would be ok for us to leave bikes with her, go home to England for 2 weeks, fly direct to Malaysia to meet bikes.
You all rate her very highly so I am inclined to believe her but we've never left the country before the bikes before. Has anybody done this in Korea? (I would not do it in most other parts of the world!)
Appreciate your advice! Many thanks!
