Try Shippingmasters.com to ship motorcycles. I have used them many times to ship motorcycles and they always hook me up with really good DOT compliant shippers. They are AMA members and A+ BBB members also. They have a bunch of different shipping methods and prices to choose from and their rates are very competitive. Stay away from the bid websites and car shipping brokers to ship motorcycles. Most of the transporters bidding on bike shipments on those bid websites are operating illegally because most of them do not have DOT licenses and most do not have cargo insurance. The car shipping brokers are notorious for quoting a low rate and fast time frame only to raise the price and lengthen the time frame after you book your shipment with them.

If you crate the bike yourself, it's usually the cheapest way to go. Since distance & fuel costs are the main factors that go into the cost, there shouldn't be too much variation between the prices you get, providing you're using the same method. (Some may have a trailer designed specifically for bikes). I don't have any personal experience using them, but a friend of mine swears by A-1 Auto Transport.

The price sounds really good. I'm not sure if it's the best way, or you can just rent a u-haul and deliver it yourself. That way the only damage comes from your part and you get to personally see the merchandise being delivered. You be right there on delivery and know exactly what's going on.

I've heard that the most cost effective way to ship a motorcycle is to use airport to airport air-shipping services. You'll need to pack the motorcycle in the same fashion as if you were shipping via boat (put it in a secure crate). Here's an article about shipping motorcycles overseas that might help http://www.michaelpadway.com/travel-and-touring/ho

AVOID HaulBikes, shipping time estimates are just a come-on to get your money, then wait forever to get the bike. I signed with them 7/10/12 its now 7/30 and they just picked it up 2 days ago.
It currently is in a depot and I might get it in 2-3 weeks.
I could have pushed it to Md from Ne in less time.

For starters, do not waste time with Uship, which you'll find giving a so-called "quote" on Ebay motorcycle listings. I wasted a week by having them put my delivery up for bid. Do not get involved with brokers who will represent that they are motorcycle shippers when in reality all they do is charge a fee to try to find a trucker. Find an independant trucker with whom you can deal direct. Google Erv Boorn, a trucker who operates out of Texas and hauls anywhere in the US. He is scheduled to deliver my motorcycle and has excellent references.
