Intro to Shipping
 
Here's a general guide to shipping - good idea to look at that first.

I shipped from London to BA in October 2008 using Colin Harris of Harris Marine.
The whole service was great, and cheaper than I expected. It was supposed to take 3 weeks and took 5, but that wasn't a problem for me. (Can't find the actual figures for what I paid - sorry!)

This was Colin's email address and hopefully still is. I'd definitely use him again.

Air Freight = Robbery
 
I recently got a quote to air freight my bike one way (GS, granted they are big and heavy) to Buenos Aires from Europe for in excess of GBP1800!!!! And i must pay all import and local costs on arrival in buenos aires myself. Needless to say i will be exploring further, more than likely will rent a 20ft container, crate the bikes ourselves and send them on there merry way. Will prob fit the 4-6 of us in easy enough. Haven't explored costs yet but surely will be a lot cheaper per bike. Happy hunting!

Hi Blythe, maybe tomorrow morning you could try getting out of the other side of the bed. Big cities are the same all over the world so get out of town for a few days, if you like the outdoors go up to the Iguazo (or however it's spelt) falls and walk about a bit or over to those lumpy bits called the Andes and try walking about a bit there. Me, I get ratted. Mark, speak to this fellow citizen of yours. Ride safe.

it is humid and buggy here all year round.

That's simply not true. And - sorry old boy - but the rest of your post sounds like you're trying to answer a question that hasn't been asked.

I've spent 3 months in Buenos Aires so far, and I can't wait to go back to the USA. I find it funny that you're trying to escape the "all about me"attitude by coming to BA, and I'm trying to escape it by returning home (San Diego/Salt Lake City). Maybe the problem is the big city, not the country. I miss community service and charities and things like that in the states, here everyone (in the nice parts of the capital that an expat like yourself would spend all of your time in) just cares about shoes, lingerie, dulce de leche, and plastic surgery. It reminds me a little too much of Southern California actually. In Salt Lake where I go to school, I feel like the "all about me" attitude is greatly diminished. And really, in the United States in general the government and NGOs alike work to solve social justice issues. Here, millions of people like in "villas miserias"or shantytowns, and no one really seems to care as long as it doesn't get in the way of their lip plumping surgery. PLUS, the internet and all utilities pretty much suck here, even in the nice parts of town, so forget about your idea of toting around your laptop to a cafe for the afternoon. Also, a lot of websites that work in the United States don't work here. AND, this is not the place to surf. It's on the Rio de la Plata, not the Atlantic Ocean. I think your problem would be better solved by moving to a smaller locale, not leaving the country. As someone who loves outdoor recreation as well, I feel very trapped in this city, and I can't wait to get home where I can ride my bike. Not to mention, it is humid and buggy here all year round. When it rains, there is nothing to do but get eaten by mosquitoes and not catch a taxi. Just some food for thought. It's been fun to visit here (mostly everywhere else in the country that I've gone), but I would definitely not leave my beloved homeland for this place.

Thanks

You are answering LOTS of questions that no one asks. No one asks you if you can surf in Buenos Aires, no one ask you what you think of Buenos Aires and more important the guy that opens the post doesn’t ask how Buenos Aires was. I’ve born and live in Buenos Aires all my life and I see your arguments completely invalid. If you don’t like B.A. no one is making you to stay here so if you don’t like it you can go back to your USA but please don’t give the new travellers false hopes about the countries they want to visit.

Also Argentina has the best shrinks in the world if you want we can give you the number of some to talk your “all about me” problem.

Saludos

Heh heh heh....sorry Mike, Simon, and Javier but we NorteAmericanos don't take direction very well, even from our own kind. What's more, we like to believe that our concerns should certainly be your concerns as well, therefore we can never be off topic in any sense.

On the other hand, I respectfully disagree with my fellow 'Mercan (I presume), and wonder what he was going on about at such excessive length.

Hope all's well with the rest of you.

Mark

Hi Javier
Blythe is (WAS) a spammer. A tactic sometimes used is to copy/paste something irrelevant from somewhere else into a new post and add spam. Hence his comments didn't make sense in regard to the question. If you see something like this just press the report button and a mod will look at it. If it is crap it will deleted. Don't waste your time replying to sh!t.
cheers
Chris
