Shipping from Argentina to USA

Hello there,

We are two canadians presently doing a trip to South America on two bikes. At the end of the trip, in month of May, we look to ship the bikes either by plane or cargo from :
Chile to San Diego or
Buenos Aires to Florida

Please if you know any company who do by cargo or by plane, let us know. And we will appreciate any tips or recommandations.

Chantal

Bonjour Chantal,

One option to explore would be to use the shipping assistance services provided by Dakar Motos in Buenos Aires. They've helped many a biker in the past.

That will give you a lay of the land and you can decide whether you want to do it yourself or get some assistance. Also, a good place to check is the shipping pages here on this site where people have noted their experiences shipping to and from various locales. Not sure whether there are any details covering your exact routing and if so, whether current, but worth a look.

Hey Chantel: funny running into you here, I'm looking at BA to Florida as well, I figure I'll talk to Dakar motors as I'm going to store my bike there for a month.

Cheers Philip

we used the services of Dakar Motos about one year ago, and were absolutely not satisfied with them. No service, and very unfriendly.

I know some people have positive experiences with them, but everyone we spoke to was not 100% satisfied either.

For a full review of our shipment, check out the shipment database Argentina to South Africa.
