My bike from Italy to SA
« on: June 13, 2007, 09:31:10 am »
Ciao, I would like to ship my bike to SA or Namibia for a 15/20 days ride.
Can someone please inform me about what documents I would need?
Also what insurance should i need? temporary ones are available?

Thanks
Fela

Ciao Fela!

Ride it down!

Sorry - no advise for you, speak to a shipping agent in Italy, they should be able to advise.

Check this out, important stuff in English, don't worry much about the rest.

Also speak to Hermanator, seems like he knows his stuff.

Or maybe we must swop, you can use my bike here and then I'll come to Europe and ride your bike there-Just a joke

Google some questions as well. There are loads of answers, least of which you could find at Horizon's Unlimited, the global motorcycle traveller portal. These are bikers travelling in and out of countries on short passes so this may be the best source of information for you to obtain your permit.

Visit http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tripplan/transport/shippingQueryResults.php?ShipFrom=1&ShipTo=7&QueryShipments=Search+by+Continent

Hope this helps,

Cheers

Hey Simone

Glad to see you're visiting us again! Hope you have time to do another ride with us down in Cape Town.

Sorry, can't offer any advice on how to get your bike here, but will PM you about someone who might be able to help.

Cheers
Christo

I've spent most of my money on motorbikes, Land Cruisers, women and beer, the rest, I have to confess, I just wasted.

Thanks!

Ciao Toni, sarebbe un piacere per me incontrarci quando avrò l'occasione di venire ancora a Cape Town, città che credo sia meravigliosa!
Probabilmente mi trasferirò in Namibia prossimamente e spero ci possa essere un'occasione per un bel giro in moto!
a presto
ciao

Faccio il graphic designer ma in Namibia probabilmente lavorerò nel turismo.
Sarà a Windhoek, dove vivono due miei fratelli.

Può essere più poco costoso da spedire la vostra bici a Cape Town e da guidarla fino al Namibia
