Ulan Bataar to UK Freight

Afternoon Guys & Gals,

Is anyone aware of a shipping firm that can transport my "Funny-Duro" back from UB?

I've been able to source flights for as little as £490 but no one will entertain the idea of a crated m/cycle.

I'm trying to get this last bit sorted before applying for the WHOPPING bank loan that will enable me to leave.

Thank in advance

Rich

Hi,

I don't know of anyone that has shipped by air but three dutch guys sent their bikes back by container last summer. They arranged while in UB, if you can find other bikers who are interested and therefore make the price feasible, drop me a line and I can contact the dutch guys to see who they used.

Cheers.

I'm hoping to ride Mongolia, but due to possible issues getting from Ulan Bataar to Delhi I was thinking I'd head up to Irkutsk to ship from there... Anyone got info on that? Can't find anything out yet...
Let me know if you figure out air freighting from UB.

Cheers,

Nick
