UK to Eastern Canada

Hi all,

I have searched back through the threads here and haven't found one that relates to this shipping route, if I am being particularly bone and missed something then please let me know, but otherwise:

A mate and I are considering shipping a pair of bikes from the UK to the east coast of Canada (Nova Scotia area).

Is an agent required, if so can anyone recommend a good one?

Are there any hassles with importing and registering UK bikes in Ca (insurance etc)?

Does anyone know of approximate total costs?

Thanks in advance.

Wallnius Wilhelmson or something like that, Southampton to Halifax about 3/4 times a month £680.00 (ish) a bike 1 way. No shipping agent needed just deal direct with WW in Southampton and in Halifax where it will cost you CD$104.00 (ish) to pay port and customs. Take the bike to Southampton 5 days before sailing, they ride it on to the Ro-Ro and pick it up from the Autoport Halifax a week after it sailed from the UK, no crating or disconnecting required. Debbie in the Southampton office will sort all.
