Yellow Pages and International Freight Forwarders will get you up to date prices.

You'll need to have the cubic measurement of a crate the bike will fit in, plus weight.

I know there is a shipping company in Rotterdam, Netherlands, specialized in shipping bikes around the world. Not the cheapest...

If you need some help for shipping to the Netherlands; I live there! (until the 1st of March) Would/would be interesting to help you out; good training for my own trip and handy for you!

Thanks Dstehouwer, i have a daughter and her husband that live in Tynarlo near Assen that should be able to handle that end. Up until two years ago i was shipping containers of classic bikes from the USA to Australia so have a freight forward agent in Brisbane, i was hoping to get a few different prices from people that had sent there bike in the past couple of years and good or bad experences they may have had. Cheers.

A good mate shipped his bike from Sydney to UK and back last year for $3,000 with Get Routed.

Another good mate shipped a hot air balloon from Sydney to Vienna for $600 return a few months ago with Expediters International.

The balloon is about the same container space as a bike so go figure.
