i have only found 1 shipping in the database going this way ? and cant find anything on the forum ? maybe im doing something wrong..
i have talkt to one shipping company and got and approxemately price on2100 us dollar.

maybe somebody have done some similar ?
and do anyone have som contact infomations or recomendations for a shippineg company ?
just got a second offer, but for a RORO shipping. approx 650us dollars from kawazaki to brisbane.
my second question.
can i handle the custom and clearance in australlia my self or should i get a adgent to help mee ? how difficult is it ?
Back in 2008 i shipped from Tokyo to Brisbane with Home-Kiwicar.com for around the same amount you mentioned. Just make sure you lock your panniers on your bike, some small things went missing (i have ortliebs..)
For customs clearance in Brisbane you need an agent (through kiwicar) to represent you at the docks but the carnet I did myself at customs office.
it hellped...i also think its the former kiwi car i got the price from its now called hoeg.com or something... maybe its your shipping i found in the database?
missing phone and usb stick ?
i didnt saw the link at first (:
yes its same company...thank you
The best shipping agent in Australia is Stewart Garmey. He is very experienced and above all is honest. Last trip I used Mr Takahashi in Tokyo to ship my bike to Sydney, it ended up costing $5,800 AUD. A bloody rip off!! Since then I have sent 2 bikes to Germany and this year we took 8 bikes to Vladivostok. Stewarts help and advice were first class. This is not a paid add, I am only a very satisfied customer. His details are:
