Shipping From kazakhstan to India?


Been searching for some info on shipping my bike by any means from anywhere in kazakhstan to anywhere in india... At the moment the shipping searcher on the left is temporary out of action so any info would be greatly appreciated. Also any opinions on whether this is a stupid or easy/hard thing to do etc.

Thanks for your time

Kind regards

almaty to delhi

hello there,

maybe my information is a bit old, but thought I post it anyway.

I used in May 2000 Air Kazakhstan to fly my bike from Delhi to Almaty. I could fly in the same airplane, it was quite cheap in India appr. 300 usd all incl. Biggest problem was to get thru customs in Almaty, took five days and 500 usd (storage, agent fees, translator fee and a bribe of 100 us)

just go to the Air Kazakh office in Almaty and ask.

get a carnet before you arrive in India.

good luck

greetings from Cape Town

Kyrgyz, Tadjick and Uzbekistani airlines will be cheaper.

I flew from Bishkek to Delhi with my bike about two years ago on an airline, Galaxy air, no one has managed to trace back since, so I assume they no longer fly or have changed their name.
Kazakhstan its expensive. Air Kazakhstan is a partner of BA and run by Britons, quiet a good airline but not cheap. Customs in almaty and everything bureaucratic in Kazakhstan normally includes hidden fees (take that with a pinch of salt).
Manas Airport it's just outside Bishkek, a few hour from Almaty and a very easy and pleasant ride on one of the best roads in the region.
I think it'll be cheaper for you checking out Kyrgyz, Tadjik, Uzbek airlines and maybe (i don't know if the do fly there,) Pakistani and Indian Lines.
Good luck with it.
