Submitted by Malcolm Brown ~ Uk Mal. With reference to your email, I have shipped various cars and parts from the USA to the UK. The company I use are based in the UK but ship from all over the states. They have contacts based in the states so can and have arranged collection from most states to the nearest ports and then ship all over the world.
My contact is Jamie Hill, from Hill Shipping. http://www.hillshipping.com
. All the contact details are on his website, I cannot recommend this company enough. I once had goods arrive damaged, he arranged and sorted out full compensation, all about excellent customer service.
One of the shipping companies he uses (and the company that have dealt with all my imports both from the east and west coasts) are West Coast Shipping. http://www.wcshipping.com
. They can ship pretty much from anywhere to anywhere. Again all their details are on their website. Again from experience they are highly recommended and the only company that I would be happy to deal with my shipping needs. If I can be of any further assistance then please feel free to drop me a line.

"I'll tell you the story about shipping a bike from the States to Jebel Ali port in Dubai. I shipped my Big Dog K9 bike from Dallas overseas to Dubai port with the shipping company below, Globe Express. They did a great job, bike arrived after 5 weeks almost on appointed date, the bike was safely packed in a wooden crate and all smaller parts as sissy bar, pillion seat, mirrors, a leather bag and some other small stuff was all well packed in cardboard boxes and placed in the crate along with the bike. The important bike documents (title) and the keys were sent by airfreight DHL. I had a very good communication with a Mr. Adrian at Globe Express all the way from when they picked up the bike at Rick Fairless StrokersDallas bike shop, in Dallas. All paper works was taken care of from their side - very convenient. Yes, I know the shipping company is a bit far from the coast but it might be of an interest, though.

GAC is a big shipping company in UAE - I have a Swedish friend working for them here in Abu Dhabi. He says they ship all kind of goods. GAC North America - Logistics operates as a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) in Houston, making it one of just two logistics companies in the city to meet the criteria required to operate such a special facility.
People who repatriates from UAE often use GAC to ship their belongings - reliable and having the best value for money.
