Israel to Vancouver (Cheap and Slow)

Well made it to the end of the road for this trip and I'm looking to ship a bike from Israel to Vancouver as cheap as possible. Transit time is not a factor. Any contacts, quotes or suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks, Chris

I have no personal experience with seafreight ex-IS, but I have
found this agent very responsive to inquiries by email, skype, or tel:

Adi Sagi, Commercial Dept
Airgate (Israel) Ltd
Lod, 7 Hamelacha Street, 71250 Lod
Tel: (Head Office) +972 (0)8 921 9119
Adi direct tel: +972 (0)3 973 1001
Adi Mobile: +972 (0)54 232 3864
Fax: (Head Office) +972 (0)8 921 9333
Fax: (Airport Office) +972 (0)3 973 1003
email: adi@airgate.co.il, or info@airgate.co.il
Website: www.airgate.co.il

Note that this agency is based at TLV airport and is primarily airfreight , but
any "good" freight agent should be able to help you.

Here is a website link to "all" international sea/airfreight agents in Israel:
A-Z Airfreight Directory - Cargo Agents/Freight Forwarders - Israel

You may want to start with any agent that has an office at seaports of
Ashdod and/ or Haifa.

Also note that "cheapest/ slowest" may not--necessarily--be seafreight all the way from Haifa to Vancouver. It's possible that cheapest may be seafreight westbound thru Med/Atlantic to eastcoast Canada, e.g. Halifax NS, followed by overland trucking to Vancouver. It may also be "cheaper/slower" to seafreight from Haifa eastbound thru, e.g., China, onward to westcoast Vancouver.

good luck--let HUBB know what you find.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
