Motorcycle transport from Australia to Asia

Hi guys,
we arre looking for a possibility to get the bikes to Singapore or which would be better to Kathmandu/ Nepal. I've searched the hubb but everything I had found was the other way around. So is there anyone who has any experience I bringing a bike to Asia. Origin port would be Brisbane, Sidney or Darwin.
We are not thinking of bringing them to East Timor - should be the last opportunity.
Thanks for your help

I sent my bike from Brisbane to Bangkok through Qantas. I didn't need to create it. I just turned up a few days before i wanted it to arrived in Bangkok.

You need the following
customs clearance number - you get from the customs office in the city (takes about 2 days)
Dangerous certificate which you get a couple of hours before you drop it off at the airport. You need an address at your destination. I used a random hotel address.
Qantas charged on the weight of the bike rather than the volume - which saved me alot of money.

Hi Maximondo, have you entered your shipping details into the transport blog on HU site? It would be much appreciated if you could fill in a bit more detail about your air freight experience with Qantas.

I used Hellman to ship 2 bikes from Darwin to Singapore in Jan 08. No problems at all. No crating and very quick. Highly reccomended. Perkins Shipping is a lot cheaper, but you might have to wait a week or so for a ship and then it will take another week or so.

Hi Maxi,

What kind of bike was this?
How did they transport it - did they crate it - or do they have special containers for bikes?

Im keen to find out about this - because the volumetric weight pretty much doubles the 'weight' of my bike.
