    Something like this will be very costly to transport.
    The volume it takes up and the weight counts against it.
    Just to give you an example, I sent a off-road bike from Cape Town up to JHB a few weeks ago, that was R2100 on economy

    I reckon it will be cheaper to go and fetch it yourself on a double axle trailer.

    Phone trailer rental companies. some times, if you are not on a tight schedule, they need to move a trailer from one town to another, And they will ask you basically just the one way trip. Maybe you are in luck.

    Probably cheaper and less risky to build a new setup in Durban
