Hi Motylek,

I shipped from Hamburg to Valparaiso (Chile) and back with Martina and Enzo ( villakunterbuntvalpo@yahoo.de ) - they make the shipping of about 150 Motorcycles per year. Martina prepares you an Excel sheet with all the costs (you just have to ask kindly-maybe ask two times)
The price you mentioned is really good, but I guess its not the full price (Customs/habour costs, storage etc.)...

Cheers carliO

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
