Shipping Dili to Darwin - Perkins!? (sorry - same post as in the Australia forum)
(Sorry for doubling up the post from the Oz forum here - but we're looking for a quick answer)
We're 4 people/3 bikes and would like to ship from Dili to Darwin end of May. We've had a look at the Perkins site & looked at the schedule. We've also been in touch with Perkins in Australia and asked them about the specifics of when we need to have the bike ready in Dili.
Perkins referred us to their Dili Agent (SDV), whom we contacted but for over 1 week now (2 emails from us), we haven't heard back from them.
Problem is: Dili is expensive for accomodation so we'd like to get there as late as possible.
Has anyone got experience with SDV in Dili? Maybe a telephone number from them?
How long prior to the scheduled sailing does the bike have to be ready?
Is it safe/possible to crate the bike and leave it with SDV/Perkins for a few days (so we could fly to Australia before the bikes leave Dili)?
