Those were for the bike only, but i dont think weight matters upto a certain point. With airfreight its all about volume. Whatever fits into the crate, goes.
To try some quotes out at leisure, go to ups.com and find the international frieght section and try out the various options for a given volume. you will find that you can put up to 400 pounds of extra stuff before the price quote swings up.

Good luck. email me at srileo@hotmail.com if you like. I go to crate the bike next weekend at Schumacher.

Thanks P&C

Yes that's some friends of mine shipping through Gaston.
His prices are really high and I need to get down there earlier.

He wants around $1200 per bike and then another $440 depending on
the # of bikes and then a $220 charge.

Unless I'm reading his prices wrong.

maxvert -

compared to the 3700.00 quote i got from schumacher cargo in LA for shipping my bike from portland to los angeles (GROUND) to buenos aires (AIR), your quote doesn't sound too bad to me right now.

have you exhausted all the options in the HUBB's shipping/freighting directory?

how about the obvious but overlooked UPS, DHL, etc? i hear you can also get pretty reasonable rates shipping with air canada....

Schumacher Sea Freight

maxvert -

just got the following quote back from schumacher using sea freight to valpariso, chile instead of air freight to buenos aires. this price includes ground freight from portland to their terminal in LAX, which i imagine would be similar for you.

for 2500.00 less than air freight, it is looking like i am going to be starting my adventure in valpariso. i haven't asked about shipping time yet, but that is next. i'd recommend emailing her and starting a quote.

here's the contact info for rachel, their sea freight person:

Rachel L.V. Ulale

Corporate Address: 550 W 135th St, Gardena, CA 90248 - USA

Hello Fritz,

Please review your dock to port rate quote:

Ocean: $599.36
B/L: $ 7.00
Bunker: $ 12.11
Documents: $ 90.00
Inland: $100.00
Crating: $150.00
Inland: $425.00 Pick Up from PDX to our warehouse
Total: $1383.47

Once the bike sails, it will take approximately 23 days to arrive to the final port. We will need to have the bike at least 2 weeks in advance (crating and customs clearance). Once the bike arrives to the port, it normally takes 48 hours to unload the vessel of containers.

Additional $

There will be some additional port charges in Chile, but not
the outrageous ones in Argentina.

The ride from Valparaiso over to Mendosa is awesome.

Thanks for the info.

Late into the game

Hi All,

I'm shipping a bike and sidecar out of LA to Valparaiso (Santiago) then heading over the Andes to BA. I've done this before and it's pretty smooth. This time I'm working with Gaston Etchart (the arranger) out of Florida. I have an enclosed trailer that will be leaving the Portland area for the second container and can haul a couple of extra bikes for cost. Let me know if this helps.

Coach

INFO EMAIL FROM GASTON:

Dear riders,

Attached you will find the bases for our container shipping. Offering (2) shipments out of Los Angeles to Valparaiso, Chile, (1) in November with arrival the 2nd week of December. Another shipment the second week of December with arrival 1st week of January 2013.

The shipment is considered full loading and unloading, including prot processing on both ports. We advise to everyone interested that, you should be in Chile around the vessel arrival, 2-3 days after arrival date.
Those with arrival date problems, we are recommending to carry their own BL (Bill of Lading) and paying extra daily storage. Or, arrive with the group and clear the bikes at once.

Bikes to be loaded in L.A. on an specific date (around 7-8 days previous to departure) at a designed warehouse. Early arrival is ok but 10 days max.

Shipment is also available from Houston to Peru or Chile , either individual or using a container (4 bikes minimum).

Any question please do not hesitate to ask. Spread the word!!!!

Thanks,
Gaston Etchart

Gaston

Same here,
I'm looking at his November departure, mid December arrival.
Looks like 4 other interested riders (bikes)
The more bikes in each container the cheaper per bike.

Be sure to be around when the container unloads, or expect a
$90 per day storage fee.

Anyone else need to ship in November.

Who has shipped with Gaston before and how did it go?

Twist it, Max

Cost Differences

FWIW,

Looking at the differences between P&C's Schumacher shipping cost quote
and Gastons cost breakdown you will notice that Gastons costs
include those in item 2,

Item 2 - CHILE inclusions:Handling, fee, THD, TDI, Customs, Container mobilization for Customs inspection, forklift, Crew service, Gate out, Vessel Agent, Unload at port warehouse.

which are not included in Schumacher's breakdown.
From my experience these can add up to many hundreds of $
