    *Por favor vea las instrucciones en Espanol de abajo*

    In an effort to ease the exchange of information around bike shipping we are creating an index thread that will help connect inmates and prospective shippers.

    Here's how it works:

    1 - Shippers - if you are in the business of shipping or any of it's related endeavors you will start a thread in the VENDORS forum here detailing the services you are offering. Once you've established a thread in Vendors you can link it to this thread.

    2 - Inmates (not in the business of shipping) - if you are a member of the forum and have a need to sell a space or other service you purchased previously you will start a thread in the appropriate Flea Market sub forum here. Once you've established a thread in the Flea Market you can link it to this thread.

    Please do not post in this thread unless you are adding a link in one of the above 2 scenarios. Remember, this thread is intended to get information out to people. Think about that when you are about to post here. If you want to have a conversation with the shipper or member selling shipping space do so within the Vendor or Flea Market threads.

    PLEASE DELETE YOUR OLD LINKS


    If your item sells or expires or whatever, delete it. Keep the place tidy, it makes it easier to find information.

    This is a community effort, spam, excessive commentary, and old undeleted posts will clutter the thread up quickly which is defeating the purpose here. All posts not meeting the criteria above will be deleted. We reserve the right to abandon this practice if members continually ignore the rules.

    Instrucciones Y Reglas en Español aquí, POR FAVOR LEER ANTES DE HACER UNA PUBLICACIÓN

    En un esfuerzo por simplificar el intercambio de información referente al flete de motos desde y hacia Latinoamérica, se ha creado esta sección a manera de índice que ayude a los miembros del foro a comunicarse con los entes que puedan prestarles el servicio.

    Como funciona:

    1. Empresas de Transporte: Si Ud. Está en el negocio de transporte o cualquiera de sus actividades relacionadas, deberá iniciar un publicación en el sub-foro VENDORS aquí . En el contenido de esa publicación, Ud podrá explayarse con todos los detalles que desee en lo referente a los servicios que ofrece su empresa. Una vez hecho esto, podrá publicar aqui en el tema “Latin America Shipping Index” con el link a su publicación en la sección VENDORS (únicamente el link)

    2. Miembros del Foro: (aquellas personas que no están en el negocio de los fletes). Si Ud es un miembro del foro y está en la necesidad de ofrecer un espacio para transportar una moto o algún otro servicio relacionado que fuera contratado previamente por Ud mismo, primero deberá hacer una nueva publicación en la sección FLEA MARKET aquí. Una vez hecho esto, podrá hacer una publicación aquí en “Latin America Shipping Index” con el link a su pubicación en la sección FLEA MARKET (únicamente el link)

    Para hacer una pubicación en “Latin America Shipping Index” Ud deberá estar en una de las dos categorías enumeradas arriba. Pedimos el favor de que al momento de hacer una publicación, solo la haga si se encuentra dentro de una de las dos categorías detalladas arriba y únicamente publique el link correspondiente. Recuerde que esta sección tiene como objetivo facilitar el intercambio de información útil, piense en eso al momento de hacer su publicación. Queremos evitar que este tema se llene de conversaciones irrelevantes para terceros, así que si necesita contactar la empresa transportista o al miembro que ofrece un servicio, por favor no lo haga aquí, hágalo en el sub-foro donde está publicada la información detallada, ya sea VENDORS o FLEA MARKET.

    FAVOR BORRAR LOS LINKS CADUCADOS

    Si el servicio que Ud está ofreciendo ya no existe o si ya logró enviar su moto al destino que deseaba, por favor borre su link. Ayúdenos a mantener este tema ordenado de manera que la información válida sea fácil de encontrar.

    Este es un esfuerzo comunitario. El spam, los comentarios excesivos dentro de una publicación y /o las publicaciones caducadas que no fueron borradas, abarrotarán el tema lo cuál hará que pierda su valor. A nadie le gusta leer cientos de páginas buscando dos renglones con la información que necesita.

    Todas las publicaciones que no cumplan con los criterios aquí especificados, serán borrados por un moderador. Nos reservamos el derecho a eliminar esta sección si vemos que los miembros no respetan las reglas de pubicación.

    I have some experience with shipping between the US and Latin America. I will help anybody who needs it, for free. Wherever you are, and whatever you have, I'll help you figure out how to get it to where it has to go, at the best rates available given your goals.

    There is an extensive amount of shared experience here on advrider, and there's a ton of information on how to ship bikes quickly and efficiently. You just have to know where to look. Shipping can be the most difficult part of a normal experience, but it doesn't have to be. You just need to understand the process.

    I am not a vendor and I'm not interested in being part of anything of value changing hands. I'm offering this for free.

    Send me a PM and we'll get started. Or, we can communicate in a shipping thread of your own. I prefer to communicate in public, so that others can benefit from everyone's experience. If you need to operate in secret, then I can't help you.

    I'm pretty sure I can save anyone money.

    Howdy--

    I'm currently in Costa Rica, and originally the plan was to dip down to Panama and then flip back around and head back north to the US--however now that I'm hear, I'm thinking that I'd just like to continue to South America and get as deep as I can in the time available.

    Given that time is my priority, I'm thinking that air would be a better fit for me, as although 5 days on a boat sounds awesome, I just don't think that I can spare the time.

    Can anyone help me pull a bike shipment together from Panama to Bogota? It's December 3rd now, and if I could waive my magic wand, I would be in the air sometime around December 9th to Columbia.

    I'm traveling, so I might now be johnny on the spot with my replies, but I will be staying each night with WiFi, so I will answer as soon as possible.

    I have a 2002 BMW 1150 GSA with Happy Trail Panniers.

    Thoughts? :beer

    Having just done this, and gotten burned with Chilean port forwarders and criminally excessive "dry port" fees, I would suggest talking with Martina and Enzo at Hostal Villa Kunterbunt in Valparaiso. They know the landscape of import for bikes and will ensure your best rate.

    I tried to bypass a local agent, and do it in my own. Bad move. Martina and Enzo came to my rescue, but I paid more than if I had let them arrange all points.

    if I had to do it again, I would just nut up the cost of air freight. Shipping involves too many vectors for graft, payola and misdirection on the receiving end.

    Dry cost when you are consolidating a cargo bike is always expensive everywhere in the world, not just Chile. In the U.S. can cost over $600 dry out fees form a forwarder. Chile is expensive too.
    We use an specific maritime line down to Chile or the West Coast, to avoid such elevated dry costs.
    Now, exporting out of Chile or any country in Latin America it is expensive too. That's why we offer sharing a container at the end of summer out of Chile.
    Better thing to do for those shipping individually is flying the bike from Santiago to Miami or L.A. , it will end costing less than consolidating ocean cargo.

    So, Gaston, how's the latest shipment going? Is there anything you can do to get things moving along a little faster?
