Shipping Motorcycle

I had to, sadly, say goodbye to Houston and move to Burbank CA (family reasons). I'm trying to get Claudia here (my S1000RR) but having hard time finding the right way to do so.

Has anyone used uShip? quotes are more that reasonable but I read mix reviews of using this system.

Uship is a clearing house. The bids are from subcontractors and so the reviews are varied. I have had very good luck with a shipper I found on Uship but he has since been run out of the game by the "big guys". Forward Air is another choice but requires more legwork on your part. I hope you find a good solution and then can pass it along.

One of the members on the COG forum used Uship. As stated above they use subcontractors. The sub wrecked enroute. He had no insurance. Bike was a total loss. Rent a uhaul and take it yourself. Only a 2 day trip.

Try Keyboard motorcycle shipping. Excellent company and only ships pianos and motorcycles. Used them two times without any damage whatsoever.

Unfortunately the reason I'm here will not allow me 2-3 days away. In fact, as much as I'm looking forward to start doing track days it won't be many.

Forward Air works well. I shipped a VFR from South Texas to LA. No issues.

Drain the fuel, show up and strap your bike down in their metal box container with your straps and lock with your lock.

It was reasonably priced as well.

I looked at uship briefly but wasn't really happy with the way things worked and ended up using a different one, A1 Auto Transport. No complaints with them and they were on the cheaper side compared to some others I looked at at the time (about a year and a half ago).

Sorry didn't realize this was a couple months old. Hopefully it's taken care of by now!
