Shipping a bike within the US/ Remote purchase

Hey Everyone
I'm hoping to buy a bike here soon and have it shipped to me. I am currently in Colombia and know of a few freight forwarders in Miami. Just wondering who I could use to have the bike shipped from the sellers location. So far I have found citizenshipper but know there is quite a few more out there.
The other part of the equation is making the transfer. For that I found escgrow but am open to other suggestions as well, maybe using a local dealer.

Thanks everyone in advance.

... yes I know it's a bit of hassle but the bikes are far more expensive here and I wouldn't mind learning a thing or two in the process.

Not exactly sure what you're trying to achieve. Ship a bike from Colombia to the US, or buy a bike form the US to ship to Columbia? Or, buy a bike in the US and ride/keep it here?

If your going to be buying in the states and shipping here you go .

If you buy in Canada try one of the airlines to fly the bike direct to Colombia, might be easier.

Good luck Slowphil
Everything will be all right in the end
and if its not alright then it is not yet the end.
