Transporter Needed

Looking for a reputable company to haul a couple of bikes from New Hampshire to Colorado in July of 2010, any suggestions and feedback, thank you in advance.

Re: Transporter Needed

Ride ....that is exactly what I want to do only in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming & Montana transporting the bike will free up 3-4 days to see more of the country and do more things.

That sounds like an awesome trip. Riding the Utah is beautiful.

I just bought an '08 Venture and it is being shipped as we speak. So far these guys have been great. Cost me around 500 beans between two "zones". They specialise in bikes - no crating or prepping needed.

Re: Transporter Needed

+1 on the folks at www.haulbikes.com. Had a great experience with them about 10 months ago. No need to crate. All their drivers are bikers too.

Re: Transporter Needed

I HIGHLY recomend MATT GEHMAN of Wolverine Transport. I ship lots of bikes and he always takes great care of them and gets them there on time. He's a one man show so he'll answer the phone personally.

Re: Transporter Needed

I used Taylor Welty to transport my LT from FL to MA this past March. He did a great job at a reasonable price. Contact: 386-233-4548, [email protected].

I used Allied back in Feb. '09 and for $600 had mine shipped from Sacramento, CA with full insurance. Worked for me.
