Chile to seattle (montana)

Hi.
We have two BMW Xchallenges which eventually will be located in Chile in mid December 2013. We want to return the bikes back to Montana USA.

1. What are our options?
2. What will give us least hassle and what will give us least cost?

All advice would be great?

Its 2014 and time to get updated shipping charges (Inflation)

Gaston,

I am going to call you but I see you post by ship but I see you also do air shipping. On average a 2007 Harley Road King 900 LBS from Miami to Santiago, Chile is roughly how much?

Does that price include all the fees Aduanas in Chile will request?

Do you mind if I come down and visit since I am in Fort Lauderdale and maybe take a pic of your place for a post? siria buena para la promocion de tu negocio!

I have sold to the port in FL but was a simple delivery to Jksv,FL after payment was made.
Talking r.e., a $4-5k BMW bike
In most countries in South America you cannot lawfully sell a used bike or other vehicle that was imported on a "temporary exempt visitor motorist" condition. What that means in practical terms is often this: a local country resident can't buy your bike and register it with the national motor vehicle system. But some countries look the other way if a foreigner is selling to another foreigner (that is, tourist to tourist, never becoming registered in that country). Such a sale produces something of an orphaned bike and the new owner sometimes can't get a valid enough bill of sale or other document to allow him to get it into another country, and within 90 days he has to get it out of the country to meet the temporary import requirement.

I am speaking primarily of the conditions in Chile but it is my understanding that the neighbouring countries have similar constraints. Riders do sell their bikes down here, lawfully and otherwise, but it's the new buyer who has the challenge, and that seriously depresses the value of a used, foreign-registered bike.

For what it's worth.
