What company ships bikes from Halifax to Germany ?

Anyone know a good shipper by boat out of Hfx to Bremerhaven or Rotterdam etc ?
I have a German guy here on a F800GS who needs info, his Swedish shipper will not do eastbound, only westbound.
He just finished 3 months 35K kms Hfx - Trans Lab - Alaska - Calif - DC - NY - Hfx and needs to ship it home so he can fly.
Yeah, it was a surprise to him too . . .

I met a couple Germans in June at Meat Cove who had just picked up their bikes in Halifax and were starting a one year trip They had shipped them on a roll-on/roll-off ship from Germany. Don't know if this is the same shipper or not.

Thank you. I found them, they use RoRo.
Hopefully they are not the same ones he used westbound, will find out tomorrow.

Anyone have a ballpark on the costs to get a bike from Nova Scotia to Europe?

About 1k CAD from Germany to Halifax (2011).

A lot of us have used Stefan's company, and have the MC stored at his facility in Heidelberg.

It is extremely convenient, he has a annual container leaving from Florida in March. I know it would be a challenge to ship from Maine to his depot (inside US shipping is far cheaper than Can/US shipping) but I would add the zero hassle factor as having a huge value.

Stefan takes Visa and since I had enough travel points on my TD Travel Rewards Card, I was able to redeem points and have the cost covered. I received a invoice from Knopf Tours and that satisfied Visa

The lack of hassles is well worth getting the bike to Florida. We shipped out of Vancouver as he often has space in October if a group of Europeans are sending their bike home, otherwise I would have ridden or shipped our bike to Florida
