I am looking to having a rolling basket case shipped. It is a rolling chassis and boxes of parts. I have looked into Uship. Has anybody done this and how\who did you ship with.


Thanks
Al

There are numerous threads about this on BritBike. I prefer Motorcycle Shippers, Forward Air and Fastenal. Unfortunately, for the time being it seems Fastenal has suspended its freight service.

Neither JC Motors (motorcyceshippers), nor Keyboard will ship boxes, just whatever can be bolted, strapped, or otherwise firmly attached to a rolling bike frame.

Also, $625 - $750 is a pile of shipping to add to the price of a project...

U-Ship can be a TOTAL crap-shoot. Akin to the "Life is like a box of chocolates" saying, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GONNA GET!

Thanks for the replies. After looking at some shippers I am going to do a road trip and pickup the bike 🏍.


Thanks
