Has any body used the uship website for shipping a motorcycle?
ping leo here and ask who he used last year to ship bikes from NJ to CA. He said it was easy peasy...they show up, take the bike, strap it down, and leave...no crates, no fuss, no muss.
advocate for the injured, disabled, and urinated upon.
Federal Allied. Was as painless as could be. Got an initial quote on line, followed it up with a person and it came in cheaper. Showed up when they said they would, and away they went. Seemed very reasonable too, although that was four bikes and a sidecar. Just got a quote for just one bike, not quite as nice, but probably competitive. On the whole I would highly recommend them.

$700 to ship a my cb125 from florida to my doorstep in CA and i could track it.
they pick it up and strap it to a pallet, it stays on the pallet till they unstrap it at your house.
very good. i like.
Thanks !! I found a shipper thru USHIP..Miami FL to Concord NH for $425.00 door to door. reasonable i thought and the process was seamless... I'll keep you posted on how it works out. Se comments below on shipper......
I offer door to door enclosed transportation with no hidden fees.Iam the only person that will handle your bike,NO SUB CONTRACTING HERE!! I also only transport vehicles not general freight or other "Junk"I have been doing this with bikes since 1971 as a former racer.All bikes are placed into front wheel chock and 6 soft tie straps secured to Etrac system.Roll it in and roll it out!!No assistance is required at either end.I transport in plain unmarked trailers for security reasons, no motorcycle decals at all
A pickup truck with a camper on the back, a few bikes inside...
Double check on the insurance on the bike while in transit. Do you insure it or do they? There's a tread on the advrider site where a bike was stolen during shipment with one of these uship outfits. The bike owner ended up getting screwed.
Just being an unmarked trailer wouldn't seem to be enough insurance to me.
And what'd you buy?
graig, insurance is covered thru uship. i talked to the shipper and he was as friendly as tex!! lets just say the bike i got is well....flippin awesome!!
