Urgent advice please
Consign the bike to your Father-in-law by all means, but best you employ a Customs Agent to effect the Customs Clearance.
I recommend you contact Ian Hunter firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ian is at Tullamarine and this is the type of work he normally does for me - I ship motorcycles to and from NZ and the UK in 40' containers.
As long as the bike is consigned to him and you send an explanatory letter there shouldn't be any problems.
Good luck with the healing.
