air freight to Miami
Got a decent price- $1700 crated to Miami from Rio.
Company is called Cargo Clan
They use Air Tam and have the lowest per weight volume charge in the game. Plus, daily flights to Miami. I'm about to drop off the bike today and it leaves tomorrow.
I also spoke directly to US Air cargo, who inform me, contrary to what every agent in town says, you don't need a box, and strapped to a pallet is fine. There's scam going around with the agents where they tell you you need a box made with special wood that's bug-resistant, and they can't build it at the airport so you need to pay to ship it- totaling USD$700.
I highly recommend anyone considering this to just go straight to the airport cargo terminal and talk to people there in person.
