Info for shipping companies from USA or Canada to Russia.

I have been searching extensively here for any concrete info about shipping bikes from USA or Canada to Russia and cannot find any info about name of the companies and contact information for any that ship that way. Also, nothing much about the cost these days.
One of the companies mentioned the most is Fesco, but after contacting them, they are not offering this kind of service anymore.
I got few other contacts from them to other companies and currently am waiting for replies.
Will post what I will find out.
Any information from anyone here would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Preferably from Anchorage, Alaska to Vladivostok, Russia, which should be possible these days...

Jaaty,
We are having the same problems from Canada/ USA to Japan, sounds easy, but just gotta find the right people . It will probably end up going from Seattle or Vancouver over to Japan and then catch the ferry to Vladivostok. We have found nothing at all in Anchorage and like yourselves we waiting on a few replies, when we get it sorted we shall post our results on here, good luck and keep posting.

It appears, the most commonly used route is from Vancouver to Seoul to Sokcho to Zarubino (west of Vladivostok).

But, looking forward to some more qualified replies, others than my observations.

So far we have found the best option to be to get a container from either Seattle or Everett, WA to Vladivistok. The pricing we got so far is about $2600 per container, which does not sound so bad, if we can find more bikes and share the price (did that from Panama to Equador and even though a bit of hassle, it worked out very cheap as we found 3 other bikes, totaling in 5 bikes, which fit perfectly).
Plus a bit of fees, which I will post later when I have all the info.
Still gonna try to find something from Anchorage, but we are flexible.
Bushman uk... when are you planning to ship? We are gonna be there sometime in May 2011.
Will post more as we find out more.
Still... any more concrete info is very welcome. Or any experience or advice.
Cheers.
Jaaty.

This pricing is from Everett, just have been told that rates from Seattle are higher.

I am planing this trip for 2012. But, I need airfreight shipment. Sea freight will take too much time for me.

I`m interesting in the other direction. The best option is the shiping bike from St. Petersburg to NY. I have a lot of time and the key condition is pricing. So the seafreight are the more preferable option. But I have not got an idea at the moment how to organize this movement. The most freight forwarders operate with a container shippings so I have to order the whole container for one bike. It`s too expensive...Moreover the most companys prefer to deal with a legal entity.

Jatty,
Sorry for the slow reply been busy making money in our present climate ( i'm a heating engineer )
We are entering the USA in the first week of April and then taking a ride down the gulf of Mexico and then visiting my son who will be near San Diego then up the pacific highway to Anchorage via top of the world highway and then if needs must back down to Vancouver. We should be looking to exit to Japan around mid to late may .
we are still waiting on replies from shipping companies !!

seattle to Tokyo

almost 2 years ago Simon and I shipped from Seattle to Japan. this is a fast and easy route and the customs in japan are highly efficient and very well organised (and its not always necessary to have a carnet) we had a carent and so found the whole experience to be very quick and easy.

shipping directly into russia we hear is and has been a real problem for some travelers. so inorder to reach Russia we then took the ferry from fushiki to Vladivostok. again easy with no problems.

the guy we used to ship with have changed their offices etc. but he is still running the operations. he has told me that anyone interested in shipping should contact him and he can discuss things with them.
his email is
berion.exo@radiantdelivers.com

please let him know that I gave you his contact details. hope it works out for you.

Thanks guys for your replies!
And HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 to all of you!!!

Lisa, thanks for the contact. What do you mean by "and its not always necessary to have a carnet"? We were under the impresion that you always have to have carnet to Japan... We dont have them, that is why we have not even considered going through Japan. But if we could get through without them, that could change our plans a bit.

Bushman...
You are going to be there at about the same time as us. (We might bump into you as we cruise through states or Canada). Do you think you could post a little more info about pricing of shipping to Japan and then the ferry to Vlad? Sea or air? If sea are you going to use a crate or a container? If you are thinking about getting a container, we could share it (if we decide to ship through Japan, that is). We are on two bikes. That could cut down the cost considerably.

Thanks again.
And keep warm!!!

Jaaty,
That lead from Lisa is a good one , emailed Bob today and already i have had three replies from him . He can arrange shipping by air or sea, he is already trying to put together a few other riders wanting to exit at the same time , so as to keep costs down . Great service and Many thanks to Lisa (2ridetheworld.com ) for pointing us in the right direction .

Has anyone had any luck shipping a bike out of Russia for under 7000?

Hi guys,

everyone seems to be shipping in, what about shipping out? We are heading to Vladivostok this summer from Germany, and then we plan to ship the bikes to Chile in a chasing summer type deal. The cheapest we have been quoted is 4,500 and the highest 6,500. Both do not include harbor fees. We have been told we need the entire container and we are 3 bikes, so there is still room for 5 more but if no one wants in then its still rather pricey. (Those prices are bikes only, not us!)

When we look into shipping from Korea we were quoted 1500 per bike, but then another 500 to get to Korea, so its still about 2000 per bike not counting us. We were really hoping 2000 would cover a flight and a bike, not just a bike. If that is the price then that is the price, time to take some more morning classes. :-P But if I could avoid paying that it would be great. Just wondering if that price is normal or not! Anyone had better luck?
