I'm looking into shipping a bike from TN to CA. Does anyone have any input from doing this sort of thing before?
From what I've seen so far ForwardAir is the cheapest, but you have to drain the tank, disconnect the battery, and it has to be delivered and picked up from their terminals which are usually located at major airports. Cost: $549
The quotes I've gotten from the door to door services have ranged from $650 to $800 so far with no crating or prep necessary.

Here's a list of links I've found so far...

www.forwardair.com

www.motorcycleshippers.com

http://www.haulbikes.com/haulbikes.html

Just got an email from www.eagleoneexpress.com....

"Shipping would be $545 plus a temp fuel surcharge of $45 (due to the high cost of fuel), that would be door to door as close as we can get with a large semi truck, fully insured, enclosed, air ride trailer. All we transport are motorcycles and no prep needed to bike. We can p/u and del. in Dec. Let us know if we can help."

A little more than forward air, but they're the leader in my book right now because of convenience and specialization.

i had my bike shipped from mass to CA, came out to around $800, due to the fact that i had specific dates where i needed it there by, no exceptions...you'll pay a premium if you're on any kind of schedule

otherwise, i'd say forwardair is the best way to go, for all the reasons mentioned above
