Shipments done by Travellers

The HU Shipping Database!

From THIS page, you can find details of shipments ALREADY MADE by travellers, both air and sea, so you can plan your own shipment.

For each shipment, the details include Shipping Date, Cost, Shipper Contact details and a Description of the experience, often including very detailed and extremely useful information about the requirements for crating or the paperwork involved at the destination location.

If you are aware of any more up-to-date information, or you know of any shipping details for locations which aren't listed below:

Thanks to all who have contributed this information, keep it coming!

NOTE: This is not our normal view, but Google's API has somehow broken the view with a map and everything nicely laid out. We will fix it as soon as possible, but it's a very big job for us. Any Google API experts feel free to contact us! For now this will have to do, sorry.

Usage: Enter one or more of the fields, as you wish. Blank field means "all". Be sure to use correct country names, e.g. "United Kingdom" not UK or England. Unfortunately "united states" (united states of america doesn't work) gets United Kingdom as well, just work down to the bottom or last page. Not case-sensitive. Results sorted by newest first.

Yuri Melnikov

We shipped our bikes and ourselves from Vladivostok to Sakaiminato (via Donghae, South Korea).

The price indicated if for one bike and one passenger. We travelled with 300 CC, so the price might be slightly more expensive if your motorbike is above 400 CC if my memory is good.

Yuri is well know on this website and he's very professional. Same for their correspondant in Donghae, and Tatiana in Japan.

The only thing that I regret is that currently, there is only one company doing this crossing, so they can charge whatever price they want and it's quite pricey. But at least they exists.



Shipment: From Buenos Aires, Argentina to London, England - June, 2019

5/5 - Excellent
Dakar Motos

Contact was really good, they both speak excelent English. I used email. But they also have a whatsapp and mobile number. This is 

+54 9 11 4067-4268 Thats the one that I used but Javier also has another mobile. That is 

+54 9 11 31568939

54-11-4730-0586 This number is taken from their website. I haven't used it.

It is a Husband and wife team and they are always busy so there may be a delay in answering the mails.

I can recommend them, they are bikers and they are specialized in transporting bikes. They were extremely efficient and friendly. They are present during the whole process and do all the paperwork. 

The address and map to get to the Terminal in Buenos Aires was accurate and really easy to follow.

They do not have an office. They use the restaurant at the nearby petrol station to handle the payment and a cup of coffee. This is all done after the bike has gone through customs and is on it's way to the waiting to be flown zone, in other words on completion of the transaction.

You can pay in cash or by credit card, Master or Visa. 

I used them in combination with Motofreight  They picked the bike up from British customs, unpacked it and disposed of the packing. They also stored it for a couple of days until I arrived to pick it up. That was what the extra cost was at destination and it was worth it in my case.

Ride safe and have fun.

No surprise costs and everything worked as planned! Javier is excellent in responding to emails quickly and thoroughly.

The original shipping quote stated a 3% cash discount but that didn't happen, even after I pointed it out during payment.

Shipment: From Bogota, Colombia to Miami, USA - April, 2019

Comercial Cargo Rider

Phone: 57-1 4824943


It was a bit expensive, but could not find any cheaper alt.

The service fr the the company and specially Victoria, was fantastic. Everything worked perfect. The bike arrived 2 days earlier.

At the arrivel it took some time, but mostly because you first had to pick up the paper fr the agent and then to the US custom, other side of the airport and then back. Everything worked smothly
