I recently test rode an Urban Arrow Family cargo bike and absolutely loved it. I'm planning on getting one as a car replacement for an upcoming move. However, it was a little ungainly (as one would expect) and the main problem had to do with the length. Urban Arrow also has the "Shorty" which is over a foot shorter and would probably work better for my use case, but sadly they don't sell it in the US.
I'm planning on visiting my family in Europe next spring and will be going to the Netherlands as part of the trip. I would like to buy a shorty while I'm there, then ship it to my home in the US. However, everything I've found about shipping a bike (from stackexchange and shipping websites) talks about disassembling a conventional bike and shipping it. Obviously, a bakfiets has quite a different size/shape and would require different shipping techniques. How would I ship one from the Netherlands to New Mexico, and does anyone have an approximation for how much it would cost?
