Air Freight to Chile
I just air freighted my bike from Sydney to Santiago with LanChile which flies through Auckland. I have purged the fuel tanks and removed the battery to be able to avoid Dangerous Goods shipment. This saved 2000 AUD !
I need to buy a new battery in Chile though. The purging and battery removal I had certifed by a licensed garage for 50 AUD.
The cost of shipment was total 3400 AUD, but does not include any cost in Chile. The crate size is 2 m (L) x 1.25 m (H) x 1m (W) = 420 kg chargable, actual weight is 325 kg. The bike will fly on the same plane with me.
