Bike shipping from Boston to FL

I'm planning on meeting my son in Ft Lauderdale and go to Daytona in Mar. and then take a ride to the keys. Does any one know of a reliable bike transporter from the Boston area to FL?

Thanks

Thanks - its -4 F now and I'm waiting for a break to get the bike to the transporter I've found if another doesn't pop up. My son rode his Suz 650 non stop to Lauderdale last year from here and that's not something I'm ready to tackle.

Thanks for the feed back.

Re: Bike shipping from Boston to FL

...did you find a transporter?

It's the journey, not the destination.

I used Allied Van Lines. They have a motorcycle division. It was $735.00 from Arizona to Kansas dropped at the driveway.

Thanks all. Found a great transporter making 2 trips. I'm counting on a small break in the weather in the next few weeks to get the bike to him.

Anyone going?

I called EZ but found another in MA. I just found out that he's actually taking my brother in-laws HD down. We're a real close family.
