Shipping Darwin - Singapore/Malaysia
Does anyone have any experience with shipping the bikes by sea from Darwin to either Singapore or Malaysia?
We have been getting quotes from Perkins and although the costs are pretty reasonable on the shipping side of things, the port charges in Singapore are just ridiculous. For example we have to pay just under $300 per bike for towing the bikes from the port to the port gates! We will also have to purchase local insurance and a bunch of other things which will add to the costs.
So... would it maybe be cheaper and more hassle free to ship the bikes to KL Malaysia instead? If anyone has any experience doing this it would be greatly appreciated to hear from you.
