This might be a bit late....
Dunno if you are still struggling to get your bike on a boat, but....
Gringo and Frank are spot on. Your bike is not interesting at all for the big companies. Your questions are only fun for the first day or two, after that it is back to business. This is completely understandable. If you want a more comprehensive service use a shipping agent that specializes in motorbike transport: eg. Peet from www.motortransport.nl
Peet has shipped a bunch of bikes to all kinds of places. He will listen to your stories, has a few of his own AND does not get annoyed by you rerouting every other day, or uncrating your bike on his doorstep.
It´ll cost you a bit more maybe, but it´ll also be a much nicer experience AND you can be sure your bike gets where it needs to go fast and in one piece.
Good luck shipping!
Everytime people see me it´s a KODAK moment!
