Everything went smooth. I packed the bike (DR650) on a pallet myself and had a friend deliver to the airport. Took front wheel off and handlebars. They charged me by weight which I wasn’t expecting, 227kg @ US$4.12 plus export documents, clearance, airline checks, transfers etc. It flew with LAN cargo and they use Fast Air to handle their freight in Santiago. Went to Fast Air (huge building, can’t miss it) with Waybill, paid $70 for paperwork, went to customs, which is right beside the entrance into restricted area on the way into cargo area. Gave them the waybill, went for an early lunch while they sorted the TIP and customs clearance. Went back to Fast Air with those documents, paid another $70 for storage and got the bike, reassembled and rode off into the sunset, it was only 3pm..but still. Arrived there at 10:30am, could have easily done it faster. My Chilean girlfriend did most of the talking, but quite a few people spoke English, pretty sure you’d get by without much Spanish.

Hope this helps
