Shipping Sydney - NZ - Sydney

Is there a shipping service to get a bike to NZ and back? How often does it go and where can I contact them?

Cheers

Diy

You can just take it down to Qantas freight at Mascot, get a bill of laiding, get the dangerous goods documentation, get the bike weighed and pay your money.
It can be shipped the same day or even go on the same flight so you can pick it up straight away.
I shipped an 1150GSA to the UK 3 years ago and it cost about 2k, it did way about 300 kilo's though.
Heaps of info on Horizons Unlimited.

In theory anyway... Might be different at this end but when I called up Qantas freight in NZ I got told to piss off cos I wasn't a freight broker.

We are using Go! Logistics who have been pretty good so far. Get Routed looks like a good deal for you guys though.

Cheers
