    Hi Mike,
    I would also be interested in this if anybody knows. do you have details of your airfreight option out of Vancouver?

    I'm in the planning stage of a trip next year. I am in South Africa and plan on heading west. Air freighting my bike to east coast of the US.

    Hi
    Following is an approximate costing for the two motorcycles to be air
    freighted from Vancouver to Seoul Korea...now, since there are many
    variables and due to the length of time till this shpt is going (8 months)
    these are ballpark figures so to speak...we dont know what the market will
    be in 8 months..also wont know the space availability as that influences the
    cost etc.

    I would say that a fair estimate would be around Cad 4000.00 plus the cost
    of crating...now, crating in Vancouver is very expensive in comparision to
    here in Toronto (we do our own) Again, an estimate would be around 4.50 per
    cu ft (crated size) plus HST of 13%...there would also be pickup and
    delivery charges which is unknown at this time...I think this will give you
    a reasonable guide line for your budget...
    Best regards
    Carolyn
