Shipping Argentina to USA. HELP! or want to split a container?

Hello everyone! Can anyone suggest shipping companies and contacts for shipping bikes from Argentina to the USA? Cheaper is better. Also if anyone would like to team up and ship our bikes together for a group discount mid april me and two other guys would be interested. Either from Buenos Aries, or Ushia to SEATTLE, SAN FRANSISCO, or HUSTON TX. I have heard you can get a container with 6 or 7 bikes, and the cost is greatly reduced. Any information or company contacts will be greatly helpful. Thanks everyone for your input! Happy trails Amigios!
Max

Hi Max,

maybe a shipment to Vancouver would be an option for you?
We're going to ship a 4WD and our two F 800 GS in a 40" container from Valparaiso (near Santiago), Chile in the 2nd week of April.
There should be enough space for 3 more bikes.

If you're interested, please contact us via our website boomer.de bike-travel - Der Blog unserer Motorrad-Weltreise - boomer.de bike-travel (Kontakt)

Thanks and best regards from Chile.

Interested Party

Hi Max,

I’m also finishing up a motorcycle tour of South America (currently northbound and in Puerto Natales) and need to get my bike back to the US as well. Ultimately, the bike needs to get to Seattle (WA), but I'm willing to travel to pick it up if necessary.

Please let me know what you find out (publicjb at comcast dot net).

Thanks,

Jeff Beecher
