Shipping bikes overseas- recomendations?
Hey so I just sold a complete bike on e-bay and the buyer is in Japan (tokyo). Can anyone advise a shipping service? I'm new to this....
(Why did I respond to this...)
Try DHL or your local phone book to see who ships to Japan for a reasonable rate.
I don't know why you responded...

FedEx, DHL, UPS, and USPS are all over $500 to ship a bike box internationally.
That's how much it costs. Try a shipping broker from the phone book for better rates, or send it in a crate via sea if you want cheap.

fly to Tokyo, take bike, deliver by hand, buy a couple of keirin frames, fly back, sell frames, swim in a pool of cash a la scrooge mcduck.
