Sorry, can not give an indication of shipping 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.
  • You have option to dripfeed payments when you have your account.
  • Jan 5th and May 5th
