Cost savings of shipping out with the bikes:

So first off, although flying yourself and shipping the bike is often cheaper than shipping you with the bike, it’s still cheaper than air freighting both body and wheels.

Jase loathes flying, so it avoided the cost of him being irrationally nervous for hours on end. And while we were on the ship, we could periodically check on the bikes, a good idea when the external docking staff come aboard to help offload cargo—keeping an eye on our wheels paid dividends as they were stored on a regular deck with all the main cargo. There were strapped down without a cage and left out for anyone to come and have a nosy. They did too, and unscrewed a couple of low value items.

Foremost, if there was a delay with the container ship (and friends of ours were stuck on the ship for six weeks), that would’ve saved us a fortnight’s accommodation in Buenos Aires (had we have flown), while going back and forth in waiting for the bikes come ashore. Glad we bypassed that hassle.

Another stunning cost avoided was the time it took to deal with the bureaucracy of paperwork. By being with your bike on the ship, we simply rolled on and rolled off. It took 30 MINUTES to clear immigration in Monte and we were off. No extra fees in paying someone to unload your crate, no fees for immigration—we were all set in literally no time at all. And no requirement to be semi-fluent in a different language to retrieve the bikes off the ship, which would’ve been nightmarish for folks like us who had zero Spanish two years ago.

So yeah, for us shipping out with bikes was a two wheeled no brainer but it wouldn’t suit everyone—nothing ever does, right?

2014:

In taking a Grimaldi container ship mid-February 2014 for a total cost of 4,800 GBP, we accompanied our bikes for 27 days across the Atlantic from Antwerp, Belgium to Montevideo, Uruguay. Sadly, I understand that it’s no longer possible to ‘roll on, roll off’ with your bike.  However, Grimaldi are still freighting vehicles such as motorcycles, 4x4s, campervans, RVs etc.
