He told me that is possible to ship a containers from Vladivostok to Italy ,
but is very expensive ....4500$ ........for only 2 motrcycles !!!
we are in two guy ( NOT sponsor ) : Helpsmilie: with 2 ( two ) motorbikes ........
the motorbikes are old and cheap bue we are loyal and we would like to bring them at home !!!I
SO I need to find in the end of May 2013 other travelers who wont to send their cars or motorcycles to divide the COSTS of Transport !!!!
IS possible to organize the shipping in Europe ......not necessary in Italy .
I wait all suggestions or news
Ciao e benvenuto su HUBB,
so, if you're not in a hurry with time, you may consider to put the bikes on the train, TRansiberian, and send it back to Moscow where you can ride it down to Italy or, if you can find a fixer in the capitol city try to manage a truck deliver back home.
Hope this helps.
greetings from Milano
i wouldn't to argue, but i think may it could be a little bit earlier, and cold, to ride the transiberian highway.
Ferry from Vladivostok to S. korea go in 2 time a week.
price about 600 us$. you with bike in one way and you must pay another 100 us $ for coustom and documents ( Yuri Melnikov )
and you will pay - road insurance in Korea. - about 120$ !!!!
After that I must drive the motrcycle to Busan South Corea and shipping the motrbikes from Busan to Italy ( price is 600/700 us$ ) and after that we must pay in Italy the company for opening the containers and coustomer office ( i don't now the price .....but it is expensive !!!!! ) .
So if you consider the time ( 15/20 days ) and the TOTAL price ......for me is impossible to use this solutions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!..... I am travelling with my Honda Dominator ....the motorbikes is old and cheap but I am loyal and I would like to bring them at home .......
Location: Now Alberta, Canada! (originally the Netherlands)
We now paused our trip for a bit, but a few months ago (when driving north through Africa) we planned on driving to Moscow, and then put ourselves and the bikes on the train (10 days...) to Vladivostok.
my contact was: Anastasia Vasilieva (who was helpful 'until I asked to start more questions' but speaks/writes good english)
Summary: you can take cargo on the train, BUT the maximum weight was 165 kg's per wooden crate @ around 1 euro/kg. (not bad, is it?) We made a plan to make 3 crates out of 2 Africa Twins (260kg's last time we put them in a plane with luggage).
Your Dominator might come closer to their max. weight demand, but I guess a bottle of booze and a smile with some cash might help you out with that.
Ticket price for you as a person is a few hundred euro's.
The weight limit is 165 kilos.
The cost is about 1 Euro per kilo.
The packaging conditions remain I have said before. (Daan: it must be a woonden crate)
To get the baggage ticket you should come to the baggage department at the station one day before departure.
We are two bikers from Vienna, and we plan to ride to Magadan this year.. But we will leave Vienna at the 2nd of June. We hope to be in Magadan about 5-6 weeks later. (Mid July) Then we would like to ship our bikes back via Vladivostok. I also talked to Yuri.
Maybe you could change the date of your trip (it's to early in the year anyway), then we could share the container and some .

If you change your planning please tell me something .....By Cristian
I am in the planning stages of going from Vlad to Europe in June next year. If you are interested and the bikes are in good condition we possibly can help each other. I could ride one of them back for you and am sure I will find a companion. I have a n easy pace as I am 64 but have a lot of experience riding very long distances. (complete and Australia-India -Europe trip some years ago) The only thing necessary would be to have the correct paperwork translated into Russian.
