SHIPPING A BIKE TO EUROPE - NEED ADVICE!
« on: August 06, 2014, 01:56:37 pm »

Hi

I want to ship my bike to Europe either end of this year or early next year.  Who knows of well priced and reliable companies who handle this kind of thing?   :-\

Also need to ship a cat (Yes, a real live one) over there.  Has anyone done something like that before?    :cat:

Thanks, I already contacted them, but I'd like a few more quotes, and recommendations would be good too!   :deal:
