The most economical way to ship your bikes would be by sea freight. It is way cheaper than postal service, Fedex or by air. But that means you will need someone to pick it up at a port. Some freight companies would forward it to a private address but that will considerably rise the price.

I bought goods a couple of times in Thailand for resale in the US (handicraft, cloth etc) and I used a freight company, the contact name was Habib and his mobile is (661) 7622919 (I'm pretty sure he does Europe too). I used him because at that time (3 years ago) he was one of the cheapest in BKK. I don't know if he's still in business.

I hate to bump this thread, but I am need of shipping some bikes back home.  I had never thought of using this method.  In general, how long does it take?  It seems like it might be weeks before the cargo could arrive?  Also, I am thinking about having it shipped once arriving at the port.  Can anyone recommend any company?
