Another good idea is to goto your local Hardley Drivenson shop and ask who ships their bikes, I have had mine shipped to Daytona from Seattle and thats who I used.

Unfortunately costy of shipping is an extra expense some forget about.

If I was in another city & spotted a buy on a 'used' bike, then I would arrange with a m/c shop or even a handyman to actually do most of the crateing myself & even arranged for a firm to ship it.
After all I found 2 half-way across Canada from my location in Cdn. Still all arrived in good shape as I did most of the work. Mind you that ads to the final cost of the m/c, but so be life as nothing is free & all expenses must be taken into consideration.

Federal Transfer

Federal Transport. If you have AMA membership, you get a discount.

I have used them twice, and they were good with the skid and securing the bike to it safely. No worries, mate.
