Motorcycle shipping?

Who have you guys used and had good results with?

Looking to possibly ship a bike from Michigan to Wyoming, so basically just along I80 for about 1500 miles.

With uship do you just pick a price between Low Acceptance and High Acceptance and hope somebody accepts it?

I've watch enough episodes of Shipping Wars to know that I wouldn't let the people at U Ship handle anything for me. . .

Advice. Get max insurance and inspect the bike once it arrives. Most "motorcycle" shippers sub contract out the jobs anyways. My bike came on a crate in the back of a truck with couches in it....

They tied down teh tail with no cloth so it rubbed the paint off. Got then to pay for it though.

Looks like Forward Air doesn't have anything near me. I've purchased site unseen before but I did a fly and ride and could have just walked away if the bike was garbage.

I used Uship when i bought my stratoliner deluxe in Dallas. I had good results and the guy was very "professional". Make sure you choose someone who has a lot of good ratings and uses an enclosed trailer.
