Thumbs up M/C shipper

I recommend Keyboard Motorcycle Shipping located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Good rates and service. Can be found on the web. Many custom builders and BMW dealers use them. Check them out.

I used Federal Motorcycle Transport, a sub unit of Allied. Not a mark on the bike and it arrived days ahead of schedule.

Bike Shipping

Having bike shipped from Jackson Hole WY to Wilmington, DE. I used Allied Van Lines. Their rate was lowest of all I called. Insurance was extra. Consider this when you are looking for a shipper. Other things to ask about, cost to palletize, cost to unload, is it cheaper to have it delivered to a business?

My bike is being delivered to the place I work at because it saves me $60.00 for residential unloading. Look into fuel surcharge, and any other hidden costs.

Good luck!

I used SendCycle.Com this past June from NC to FL and they were very good to work with.
