Shipping your bike to Los Angeles from Wellington return. Includes Marine Insurance and 46 nights accomadation.
Possible to ship your bike and ride for shorter time.
Sadly shipping not an viable option at this time.

 $2000.00 deposit secures you a space in container. I provide bases for your bike and optional crates, and a warehouse.

I allow 6 weeks either way for shipping. Good news is in the middle of a New Zealand winter you’re not likely to be on your bike much anyway.

  • Can ship helmets, jackets, boots etc in crate. Saves a lot of hassles carrying on airplane.
  • I suggest check the days riding, sights along the way and finally the cost and rememember costs are in New Zealand dollars and compare to others.
  • Sooner you pay a deposit the better. Limited room in containers and most tours have left several behind.
  • Hoping shipping returns to a more consistance service .


Travel Insurance is necessary to protect yourselves from financial loss due to any unexpected situations beyond your control. I will assist in organising insurances required being Travel, Third Party, Comprehensive and Collision.

There are conditions from insurance companies that may apply.
