  • shipping the motorcycle

    for several different reasons we had to ship our faithful bike from kathmandu (more about this in another post).

    the horizonsunlimited recommended shipping agents (eagle eyes and new worldlink) were less than helpful so we used another company, public freight.

    since we are in no hurry to get the motorcycle to bucharest, we chose to ship by sea. The bke goes from kathmandu to calcutta by truck and from there to europe by ship. It should be in bucharest at the end of january at about the same time as we will.

    after deciding what parts of our enormous luggage we can send home and what we must keep,


    we took the bike at the warehouse and prepared it for shipping

    our target was to fit everything in under 2 cubic meters, so we had to try different combinations 🙂

    I took off the front wheel, the windshield, the handlebars and the blinkers.

    after the crate was ready we put everything inside and tied them as secure as possible

      Eat a third and drink a third and leave the remaining third of your stomach empty. Then, when you get angry, there will be sufficient room for your rage.

      Locating the perfect motorcycle shipping and transport company will depend on numerous factors. The organization must have their equipment custom designed to transport your motorcycle at the safest and secure way. Furthermore, i do believe trailers should come designed with e-tracking at the same time.

      Working with a shipping company or a freight forwarders can be difficult if they are not used to work with small exporters. Pleople who are not used to ship products should be adviced and supported by theses companies. Whatever, it seems like you guy managed it well !
