Looking for information on shipping a motorcycle from Panama to the US

Anybody have any experience shipping their bike from Panama to the US. Say, Tampa or Miami? Girag doesn't go to the U.S, but they say UPS, DHL, and FEDEX do. Has anybody done this before and can they provide some info on this?

Thanks.

Bob

I have some information on shippers, but it depends on where you want the bike shipped to. Let me know what port city you prefer and I can PM you with some information. I thought Girag went to Miami?

Centurion Cargo fly from Panama to Miami, the cheapest way to do it. Contact any agent in Panama and ask them about Centurion.

Hey, same situation, looking to get the motorcycle shipped back to LA from anywhere in Panama mid to late March, cheapest option.

Any suggestions?

Or anyone interested in picking up a great KLR (or 2) mid march around Panama...

I just received a job offer to go back to Antarctica which completes my plan of shipping my motorcycle down to Chile and then riding South America. Unfortunately my departure will be rapid and with the training I have to do I will have very little free time.

Does anybody have experience is good or bad with shippers from Colorado or the Mountain West going to South America? Ideally I could ship directly to Punta Arenas but it may have to go to Santiago, which is very far but workable.

I've been trying to hit up multiple motorcycle shops for crates. No luck there; they ship them all back to the manufacturers. I guess I will have to build one, or pay somebody to build a crate for me since I will be out of the country. My contract will be over in late October, and I would return to Punta Arenas,Chile, to begin the ride.

Ideas?

Turned out selling in Panama was easy. Local guy just had to pay about $700 to import and lawyer and notary fees. Pretty simple stuff. Was a bomb more to ship anywhere and the sale price was the same as purchase price i nthe US so was pleased to do 10,000 miles and 5 months on that bike.

I had driven a 93 FJ1200 down there and legalized it for $480. Paid $1,600 for the bike in like new condition in Canada and sold it there after putting 50,000kms on it for $3,200. Well worth legalizing it. Used the money to buy a 2001 VMax which is here in Mexico City and will soon be heading down to Panama again.
