Guatemala City to London - tying up some loose ends
After a fantastic three weeks, I've finished my trip from Toronto to Guatemala City. I've just put my bike on a plane in Guatemala and it should arrive at Heathrow on Wednesday (fingers crossed).
The cost of the air frieght was just under two thousand dollars ($1958 to be precise). I used a friendly company called the Aimar Group to arrange shipping (Aimargroup.com). They replied to my e-mails very efficiently and were very helpful when I arrived in Guatemala. Their English isn't fantastic, but it's a lot better than my Spanish.
The only downside is that I don't think the price includes customs clearance charges in the UK. So I have a question: what paperwork do I need to clear my bike through customs - I don't have a clearing agent and the bike is not UK registered - I'm importing it from Canada. Any estimate of costs would be great too.
Thanks very much.
