I had troubles finding a shipping agent for my motorcycle in Melbourne. I never heard back from the first one after many emails back and forth, the second one told me her agent in Valparaiso doesn't take bikes anymore. I've lost a lot of time during my trip because of this and Ivan was a real lifesaver. When I contacted him, it took about a week to have my bike picked up. I was 300km from Melbourne when they picked up my bike, for which I paid about US$200. This and the crating costs are not included in the price, as this may vary from person to person.

In Valparaiso, I used Villa Kunterbunt as a shipping agent, they were very good. I paid about US$200 to them, and also about US$200 to the warehouse in Valparaiso.

Both the agents are recommended, wish I contacted Ivan from the beginning.
