Motorcycle transport

Post by IFLYRKTS »



I need to ship a Honda VTX1300 from Adams, NY to Las Vegas, Nevada.
I am looking for recommendations for how to ship, what company, etc.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

I had my ST-1100 shipped back home from Atlanta, GA a few years back,
my son took it home to overhaul it...

I used this vendor, they did an okay job, it was drop shipped thru several van lines on the way here, arrived on a wooden pallet in a box van. the guys with the van had no clue how to unload a bike... I refused to let them ride it off, afraid it was going to flip and ruin the body work...

I suspect that one of the few specialists who know what they are doing is https://haulbikes.com/

that is the only thing they ship.

this company is recommended highly by Ciaran Meyer of Dublin, Ireland.
he ships bikes from the USA to Ireland to resell.

I don't know anything about this one http://www.keyboardmotorcycleshipping.com/

This says they ship vehicles, no mention of bikes https://www.uship.com/

Update: My buddy and I contacted several transport companies and decided to go with Haulbikes (haulbikes.com or 888-haulbikes (414) 464-7572.
We transported a 2006 Honda VTX1300c from Adams, NY to Las Vegas, NV for $500.
The move was professionally done from start to finish.
I highly recommend them.

Hello, I want to hear from you recommendations on the transportation of equipment, can anyone this year have used some companies with good reviews and ratings? :roll:

as I mentioned a couple of posts back,
I suspect that one of the few specialists who know what they are doing is https://haulbikes.com/

the guys who moved my bike from Georgia to Oklahoma did okay as long as it stayed on the Pallet.

But, when it got to my home, the local 2 Men and a Truck has no clue what so ever, as to how to off load the bike.

Stick with the Pros, they know their business, and the costs are very comparable.

Depending on if you actually live in certain burroughs of New York, Haulbikes may not service your area, and so, you could need to ride the bike to an alternate location for pickup. Read up on their web site to determine if this applies to you. Then contact them. They can and will help you.

Hi, not so long ago I transported my transport from Florida to California by this company https://getcarrier.com/blog/ship-car-across-country/ In principle, the delivery was reliable, fast, cheap. I liked their professional approach to the product. I was glad to help with the answer. :D
