Shipping bike UK to Alaska
Does anyone have any experience shipping their bike from the UK to Alaska?
I contacted Frontier Forwarding and they quoted £2,500 to ship one way for a BMW 650 GS!!! That's half the value of the bike! But hey, it does include the crate - which I suppose I should be grateful for!
I can fly it into Vancouver for £1,200 but that’s where I was hoping to end up. I can also do a buy back option with a local hire shop but I have to return it to Anchorage – where I was hoping to start
The other option is to buy something over there but how do I do that without a local address?? I would be grateful for other people’s first-hand experience.
