I am currently in Cape Town making arrangements for my bike to be shipped back to the UK... have got quotes off two companies who both ship worldwide, Econofreight: 021 511 5513 & Kenco Freight: 021 511 7147 both seem ok but Kenco is more expensive. However, can not fully vouch for their service quite yet, but hope this helps.

Thanks big Bill. I've emailed Econofreight for a quote.

So far cheapest quote from South Africa to Kuala Lumpur is £1800 for my motorbike.

Looks like i'll be sending the bike by sea!

Holy crap.

If you're after air freight, check out MMA Consolidators, near Cape Town International. Details in the shipping database, I dealt with a guy called Brad. Waypoint here.

It cost me approx R7800 (approx £600 at the time) to fly my 318kg laden Africa Twin from CTI to London Heathrow last March, stripped down and palletised like this:


Surely it must be possible to get to KL cheaper than £1800!? Or is the pound really that weak now!?
