Shipping bike from Central America to Ireland anyone??

Hey folks, I'm on a trip from Alaska down to Central America, as far as Panama, and I need to ship my bike home to Ireland with me when I'm done. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of shipping from anywhere in Central America?? I'm guessing Panama would be the easiest. I've done quite a lot of searching about it, on this shipping thread and elsewhere and I can't find anything, companies, or info from people that've made similar shipments. Any help or information would be much appreciated.

shipping your bike to Ireland

Hi Mick, I have just posted a similar request as I want to ship my bike from Colorado to Ireland, no replies as yet.

Maybe you are already back in Ireland now, but if not get back to me and maybe we can arrange for a container that would bring both bikes home at the same time??

Email this guy - Yadira Almengor, at this address, jogi@abccostarica.com he works for this company in Panama, Logistic Management & Transportation Corp. (LMT Panama)

I got in touch with him as I'll want to ship out of Panama next January, so I haven't used then yet but he sys he can ship my bike out of Panama (I'm going to Cape Town.)

If anyone actually uses him before January I'd love to here what happens.

IronArse- where are you? I start in Alaska next week and am heading to Panama,

Hey folks, cheers for the replies.
Tony, Colorado is no good to me, as I finish in Panama and probably will not be driving back up to the US to ship my bike. Panama is a major port so I'm hoping it should be easy there.
George, I've sent off an email to that guy, Jogi, so it's wait and see. I'll be looking to ship my bike in mid-December, so if I go with this crowd it will be before you so I'll keep you posted. I'm down in the lower 48 now, hitting down through Colorado soon enough.
Hope all's going well with the two of ye, keep the rubber side down.
We're here for a good time, not a long time...
