Singapore to Darwin by air

Does anyone know of any freight companies that will ship a bike by air from Singapore to Darwin?

Dear Simon,
I know that Kuehne&Nagel, Singapore, ship bikes by air to Australia. But last October they wanted Sing.$7,500.00 for the bike, which has to be crated. I declined, and went back to Kuala Lumpur. There I contacted Kuehne&Nagel at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. They accepted bike for shipment to Perth, to go on an Air Malaysia flight uncrated. I paid US$1,000.00. In Perth K&N informed me that Malaysian Air had not accepted the bike uncrated. I agreed to crating. When the bike arrived one week later in a huge box, I had to pay an additional US$800.00. I complained to company headquarters in Switzerland. But received no reply.
So be warned. If you ship from Singapore shop around, but expect to pay a high price. If you ship from Kuala Lumpur, you pay much less, but shop around just the same. Another thing: Malaysia does not require a carnet to bring in the bike, which makes exporting it much easier. Also: Cost of living in Malaysia is much lower than in Singapore. I advise shipping from Kuala Lumpur, but not necessarily with K&N.

Hiya

I was in this situation a month or so ago and decided the cost of flying was just to much, shipped from KL to Perth, took a couple of weeks but only cost 300 USD plus about 300 AUSD for port charges at the other end. Use some of the saved money to splash out on a nice fortnight somewhere to in Malaysia to make yourself feel better about having to wait...

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
