    I am relocating and opting to ship my car (company expending costs)



    Anybody use a service to ship their motorcycle? Looking for a decent price but most importantly, taking care of my baby.

    I thought the was a "funny" at first, then thought about it. Bars off, drained fluids, wheels off... I bet the damn thing would fit!

    I have shipped a lot of bikes via Forward Air (truck freight) they are a warehouse to warehouse road feeder network, safe, fast and reliable. They have special steel motorcycle shipping containers for different sized bikes. You could also ship gear etc as there is plenty of room in the containers. http://www.forwardair.com/prepaid/MCmainpage.jsp



    They don't deliver to your door so you have to pick the bike up (and drop off) at one of their locations http://www.forwardair.com/locations/falocations.htm

    another alternative but its like ebay for shipping you have to screen your shippers is www.uship.com just join for free and post your "haul wanted" and people will bid on moving your bike

    When you're like me and have more time than money, you could put the frame in the back seat.

    Thanks all, I ended up using uShip.com like in the TV show Storage Wars. Pretty good experience and got a good deal to ship my car and truck back to MO.

    If I had the choice I'd stay in HB I have friends who live in Misery (lol) that's what they call Missouri!
