Shipping Services

Any reccomendations or reliable, affordable shipping? Have to send a rc from NH to CA and the best rate I've found is 695 thus far, and no bids on my Uship page yet.

Re: Shipping Services

That is as good as any rate that I found and I was going half that distance.

Re: Shipping Services

I have used several shippers over the course of the last couple of years. My most recent call to a driver I found via uShip warned me of several bikes being stolen even entire trailers of bikes. So please beware! Most recently I found e-z motorcycle transport and have found them to be exceptional. A little pricey but the trailer they use to protect your bike is amazing. Check them out at Motorcycle shippers, motorcycle transporting, motorcycle movers, motorcycle carriers Requesting a quote is very easy too! Tell them A. Lake referred you.

Re: Shipping Services

Got my bike after using haulbikes.com. They took >6 weeks from when payment was accepted to delivery of bike. Very long drawn out schedule and very frustrating for me! Their customer service were always friendly and tried to help as was the driver - they were just not punctual. They mentioned discounting my price given the delay but that is yet to come through so we shall see...
my 2 cents.

Re: Shipping Services

The best place I have ever used to ship a bike is Eagle One Express.

Motorcycle Shipping & Transport. Nationwide shipping of Motorcycles, Dirt Bikes, Trikes, Sidecars & ATVs | Free Motorcyle Shipping Quotes

They are door to door and were cheaper than Forward Air; which is airport to airport. Easgle One loads and secures the bike in their truck.

Re: Shipping Services

Eagle One Express hauls bikes, not furniture, etc. Given that the driver also rode, he takes care of what he is shipping. I've used the pallet shipping method and Eagle One Express was faster, cheaper and I trusted them much more. When you use a generic shipper, the reason it goes on a pallet is for a simple reason, it goes from company to company until it gets to you. Eagle One Express is not like that, the truck it is loaded into is where it stays until it gets to the destination.

Re: Shipping Services

Hello,
I said in a post below that I would report back on the service I received from HaulBikes. I received the bike today from Stuart,FL. and it was three weeks and five days from when I faxed in the contract. This was within the time frame that they specify on the web site. They communicate very well too, which is very important to me. They pick bikes up then go back to their terminal in Milwalkee and then send drivers out to the different zones.

Re: Shipping Services

Try listing on Shipjack.com. There are no closing fees and all of the haulers are DOT legal.
