    Default Need a reliable shipper

    I have been using Interstate Auto Shippers for my shipping needs, but they seem to have disappeared. I tried USHIP, but wasn't satisfied with the results. Can anyone recommend a shipper they have used with good results? I've searched the forum with no results. I need to ship a Panhead from NC to Pa.

    Thanks for any help,

    I did the same search and didn't see anything either, so I did a google search for "AMCA forum shipping" and that is the first thing that came back. Unfortunate thats its easier to go outside the forum search tool to find what you're looking for, but whatever works right? Good luck Semper Fi.

    I have used 800haulbikes (Daily Direct) about 20 times for bikes. Vintage bikes and when I ship modern bikes out to places where I want to start rides from (or home). I generally take my bike to an HD dealer for loading... and have it delivered to a dealer. It saves you money and makes sure someone "professional" receives it. Any HD dealer worth their salt is glad to have a vintage bike dropped off. Some charge me a small fee ($50 or so). For modern bikes, I generally tell them that when the bike arrives, change the oil and detail it... and the 'dropoff' is free.

    The haulbikes folks have been fantastic. The drivers are riders, too. They treat vintage bikes as though they were religious icons. The trucks are spotless and I have never had an issue.

    Just my experience... I'm about to have them ship a bike out to Portland, OR for some riding out West. Great folks.

    Cheers,

    Sirhr

    I have used Larrry Beachler to haul many bikes from many places and has never let me down. He runs west to east and back so depending on where he is at the time can be two weeks or 6. I use him whenever I can. 53 foot rig, wood floors, only hauls bikes and the guy that picks them up delivers them. If I am in a hurry I use keyboardmotorcycle shippers. I found them from buyers picking bikes up from me. I am using them to move a 47 velocette KSS now from FL.

    Larry's number is 209-495-3729 and his company is eagle one
    Keyboardmotorcycleshipping.com yes, they move bikes and pianos. They're more expensive than larry but can make the run quicker if larry is enroute west when you need him going east.

    Tell Larry Bob Greene in CA sent you. Great guy and never had an issue.

    I ship bikes several times a year, I always deal with Keyboard. They may cost a little extra and be a little slower than some of the people on UShip and other shipping companies may quote but they do what they say when they say they will. I have had nightmare experiences with people on UShip. I will never use it again.
