Do you need to have a whole container to send a bike or two bikes on that route?

You dont need to take a whole container, it´s just cheaper from 2 two bikes upwards. Actually with only two bikes it´s just a bit cheaper but from three or more it gets better...

Perkins is a pain though, but no other option from Dili... After the trip we thought to open a agency just to give Perkins some competition...

We had to wait in Darwin 3 weeks to get the bike out of customs. The container was there all the time... Perkins was no help, if we didnt took action the bike would be still there.

cheers

Hi,

no, you dont need to take a whole container, but as we are 2 bikes its basically the same costs, so we are looking for more to join in to save money then...

And thanks for the invitation to Darwin, just sent you a private message!

You are great and keeping us up here in the rain in Flores....

Chris
