Vladivostok to Chile in August 2013

Hi all.
We are two Spanish travelers, we have to travel from Spain to Vladivostok in the summer of 2012.
We are looking for a transport to Vladivostok Santigo de Chile.
The shipping is two BMW R1200GS motorcycles. The shipping date would be 20 to 25 August.
I have read in the forum that is best done from South Korea, there would not be problems if necessary move.
Anybody know any agent that we can make this transport?

thank you very much

I am also from Spain and I also will be around Vlad at the end of August. My plan is to jump to Vancouver though, not South America. For what I know, yes this should be done through South Corea. You can get quotes and information from several sources, look around in the forum... but contacting Wendy Choi in Corea should be a good start (her email address is all over this forum). There is also, Yuri Melnikov in Vladivostok (look for his address, I don't have it with me). I am planning to contact DHL and others too, hoping to get a few different quotations before deciding. Wendy said sea would be 1500USD more or less and air would be 5000USD more or less.
Good luck!

Yo también soy español y estaré (si todo va bien) en Vladivostok a finales de agosto. Mi plan es saltar a Vancouver, no a Sudamérica. Por lo que llevo investigado, desde Vladivostok no hay muchas opciones por aire, aparte de San Francisco, Seatle y Los Angeles. Para todo lo demás... mastercard y pasar por Corea del Sur. Yo estoy pidiendo información y presupuestos ya. Por lo visto, Wendy Choi (Corea del Sur) es una agente que mucha gente utiliza en este foro. Aunque algunos dicen que es genial y otros dicen que no han tenido buen trato con ella por correo. A mi de momento me contesta rápido y bien... También está Yuri Melnikov en Vladivostok (buscad su dirección, que no la tengo a mano). Estoy pensando en contactar a DHL y a otras compañías también, para tener diferentes presupuestos antes de decidir. Wendy me ha dado unas aproximaciones, 1500 dólares por barco (15 o 20 días de travesía) o unos 5000 dólares por avión (incluyendo un montón de servicios de los que puede que sea posible recortar alguno).
Buena suerte!
