recommendations on motorcycle transport companies?

I'm getting ready to buy a bike that will need to be transported from Texas to Maryland.

I have sold bikes in the past that people have had transported from me and once a guy showed up with a flatbed and I knew the bike would get damaged during transport. The other few times companies showed up with enclosed semi's and strapped the bikes onto pallets and that seemed a lot better.

I'm buying a pretty nice bike so I want one of the more reputable well known companies that has a track record of delivering bikes safe and sound.

any recommendations?

thanks in advance..

You might want to ask Rah-VFR also. He just recently had a bike shipped.

thanks - I really like getting opinions from people that have actually used a company.

Then forget about my suggestion. I've only used them twice with absolutely perfect results.

Did you specifically ask for details? Or was your question simply for recommendations?

Deez, "I hate all the mods on the .org until it's time to sell my RC51."
