    Anyone shipped a motorcycle overseas?

    I might be shipping a motorcycle to Papua New Guinea. I was wondering if anyone had any experience? I found crates, and shippers but not a one and done place. I'm in NJ too if that helps.
    Thanks!

    i've shipped probably 20 various kawasaki triples and buells overseas shawn....some as far away as hong kong. can i make a suggestion? do NOT take on the responsibility or volunteer to make shipping arrangements. that is the buyers' responsibility and here's why: payment....import docs....potential VAT payments....bill of lading.....precise pick-up arrangements.....conformity with vehicle import specs....and much more all on the buyers' end of it. NOT something you want to get involved in nor should you. tell any potential buyer it's their requirement to make any and all shipping arrangements and payment for same....on your end you will do everything humanly possible to assist including availability, supplying all contact info, and helping the shipper pick up and load the bike. any potential buyer will appreciate that offer and take it from there. other than that avoid involvement like the plague.
    PS-does potential buyer happen to be Sean Kohl? he imports alot of buells to asia and OZ.

    I sold a car on EBay for $15000 that went to Australia, The buyer had a broker in the USA that took care of everything, Make sure you get a wire transfer, I opened an account just for the transfer, as soon as the money hit the account I moved it and close the account, Also in Pa I took the title to the notary and endorsed with the buyers name on it, The same day of the transfer the broker had a flatbed at my house, He walked around the car with a check list, loaded up the car, and he was gone,
    I asked where he takes the car , he said he takes to the dock and puts in the crate, Sooo, I would make the buyer take care of everything. Hope that helps. GLWS

    Thanks guys, that's some great info!

    John, its a guy named Steve Sims. We have been back and forth a bit, seems like a good guy. I am just sourcing a place for the work, he understands he must pay them etc.

    Dave, I will try that guy for a price. That's exactly what I need, someone to show up and take it away on his dime!
