Try a BMW dealer.

Chris, thank you as always.
I spoke to them last night and it seems they DID it!

They will get the crates from a HD dealer up there.
More than acceptable deal - if you know what I mean.

Again, thank you all .....

.... and Grant, the problem seems to be fixed!!

Can you have them forward me the information on the shipping company they used? (Prices, experiences, etc.)
People area asking all the time for shipping info for Japan, but I only know a couple of companies.

Chris

Hi,

Chris: we have post it a long time ago.....

again, but you find it by the shipping search.


It was not easy to find a ship for South America in Japan. We called a lot of direct freight lines, some did not speak English, some did not have ships for SA, some did't give us a aswer.

we find the German Company International cargo. The guy there, Mr. Furukawa was very friendly and helpful. We are German, so we have to make contact to run over Hamburg. All our emails were answered super fast, just perfect.

INTERFRACHT Air-Sea-Land Service GmbH
Grusonstr. 71, D-22113 Hamburg

Tel.: +49/40/325844-12
Fax: +49/40/325844-44

E-Mail: t.karrasch@interfracht.de
Internet: Transport Logistik – Interfracht Internationale Spedition

In Yokohama, we got the crates from a Harley Davidson dealer. He was very friendly and gave us the crates for free. The Dealer is

横浜でハーレー BMW DUCATI 国産車の販売、修理もおまかせ 丸富オート

The paperwork was easy in Yokohama, we met with Mr. Furukawa and he took the papers from Peron. We were without a carnet in Japan, so there were absolutely no problems.

The crates we hold with a rental truck, drove to the harbor and packed our bikes - done! The handover of the warehouse was not a problem, we had to pay anything.

The bill and also the Bill of Loading we received via email and we paid to a German bank account.

The costs: The crates were exactly 2.5 m3. With all the handling, extra costs, taxes and the agents it was € 800 for each bike.


In Chile we have paid about 700€ for Port fees and Transport etc. All the Paperworks have done the "Villa Kunterbunt" in Valparaiso, just great!!


cheers bernd
