Shipping from North America to South America


we are new in the hubb

We are from Black-Forest/ Germany and planning a 1 year trip start in august 2019.
Our bikes are two Honda Crf 250L.
We are planing to start in Halifax. Then we want to ride to Vancouver. Later we want to ride down the US west coast in direction Mexico.

After that we want to visit south america.

And now our question:

We want to avoid the climatic conditions in middle-america.
Do you know if there are any options to ship the bikes from Southwest USA or Mexico to Chile or Peru?
We think that would be in november/december 2019.

Thanks for your help

Stef & Lukas

Thanks for your help!

Air Canada would be an option for us.

four weeks ago I tried to contact a1-autotransport (https://www.a1autotransport.com/ship...ycle-to-chile/)
but until today i didn't get an answer.

We decided to check our options again when we are in north america next year. In worst case we have to use the way through panama but we are confident that there will be an possibility.

shipping to Chile

Hallo Stef + Lukas, ja es gibt einen wöchentlichen Sammelcontainer ab Los Angeles nach Valparaiso. Dazu müsstet ihr euch eine Kiste in den USA besorgen aus behandelten Holz (mit Stempeln) oder eine OSB-Kiste wobei aber auch das Kantholz behandelt sein muss. Ihr könnt auch bei den lokalen Motorrad-Händlern nach einer gebr. Kiste fragen, die sind normalerweise froh diese los zu werden. Wenn euch das interessiert mache ich euch gerne ein entsprechendes Frachtangebot mit ALLEN anfallenden Kosten, auch den Kosten in Chile.....
Ich bin auch Biker und lebe in Chile. Ich arrangiere Mopedverladungen schion seit Jahren, einer meiner Agenten ist Intime, Hamburg, den kennt ihr vielleicht. Schreibt mir eine mail an: Ronny.tesch.a@gmail.com
Liebe Grüsse

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
