    Hi
    I’m looking to ship my bike from Southampton UK to Canada and I’m looking for recommendations for shippers in and around Southampton area.
    Depending on Covid Restrictions Next spring the final destination Could be Halifax or Vancouver

    Those I know of who shipped from the UK, shipped to Halifax via Air Canada.

    Another thumbs up for Air Canada which I have used but they did suspend their serivce this year and there is little sign it will be available next which is why I did not mention it, if it is available it is better than shipping which I have also used.

    I emailed Air Canada they have no idea what will happen next spring.
    My bike is closer to Southampton than Heathrow, so I was hoping to find a shipper in Southampton
    Shipping the bike to Heathrow is just an added cost I’m trying to avoid.

    withhany luck maybe we will be back to some sort of normal before next spring.

    + 1 for Motofreight. Talk to Roddy or Kathy. Used them a couple of times (South Africa and Chile) and couldn't be happier with them. The bike arriving safe and on time is worth the effort of getting it to Feltham. You may find airlines are reluctant to deal direct in the UK.
