Bicycle Shipping

Hey guys,

I recently bought a new bike that I love. I'm also about to move overseas. How much does it usually cost to ship something around the world? is it a huge hassle?

I'm sure this has been asked a zillionth time but I couldn't seem to find anything relevant on google

Your bike would have to be pretty special to justify shipping it overseas rather than just buying a bike when you get there.

google CH Robinson. They do consolidations to many countries. Tell them you need a door to door move. Give them the dimensions and weight. Tell them you want to use their customs broker.

Wild crazy guess - $250 to ship over water?
