shipping the bike from dumai to melaka
we just crossed the melaka strait and shipped our africa twin on an "onion boat" from dumai to melaka.
the bike was lifted into the wooden vessel by 12 people...
no problems at all, bike arrived in melaka's KUALA LINGGI cargoharbour with no harm (its about 60km north of melaka city).
it took the customs only 5 minutes to stamp the carnet and we could take off!!! great!!!
the price for shipping the bike is highly negotiable but we paid 800.000 indonesien rupiahs, which is about 80US$.
we were not allowed to bring it along on the passenger boat but it was good because it would be hard to lift the bike 3m up by manpower only.
here is the phone number of the agent we were dealing with:
WAN YANFITRI, Pt arena bahari tirtatama 0811 750839
office: Jl. datuk laksamana 292, dumai, sumatra, indonesia.
