Transporting Bikes from AUS to UK

Anyone know the name of a shipping company that ships motorcycles from Sydney Australia to the UK? I want to organise this myself. Thanks

I used this in Apr-2008 (it´s in Melbourne, and the bike was shipped by sea from Sydney, but they had an agent there near the port):

All in all I´d recommend them, the price was good, around 500 euros (excluding the receiving end). The only downside was the shipment arrived almost 3 weeks after the original ETA, but this may not have had anything to do with them (it was claimed that the container had missed a change of vessel in Singapore).

But beware of the costs at the receiving end - for example, I had to pay about 170 euros just to pick up the crate at the harbour in Helsinki!

i can help you if you get stuck

I own a motorbike shipping business in Melbourne but can happily ship from any state to any part of the world

I am also a licensed customs broker also by trade

I can be contacted on 0433 070 059 or ivan@bikesabroad.com.au or you can visit our website: www.bikesabroad.com.au

I am happy to give you a quote on your shipment but before i can, i need to know if you can provide a crate for the bike. If so, i recommend taking the front wheel off to lower height & length of crate and thereby reduce your shippping costs which will be based on the cubic measurement of the crate.

I can also get my agents in UK to clear bike at the other end if you dont wish to do this yourself
