Can anyone of you folks recommend a trucker to move a disassembled bike from California to North Carolina ? please. I am trying to get some decent quotes.

Thanks.

James.

None ..ive tried
I crated machines in basket case form and shipped them as freight. 300-500 cross country.
There are hundreds to choose from

Start with Fastenal


The formula for how many motorcycles to own is:
n+1=y
n = the number of motorcycles you currently own.

Yep, disassembled is essentially freight, not a motorcycle.

Any shipping company can give you a quote.

Thanks for the comments and advice ....never occurred to me that it would be classified as " freight " .
I'll check out Fastenal.

Thanks again.

James.

If you can loosely reassemble it to rolling, a bike shipper will transport it. Be ready to pay anywhere from $400 to $750 for a coast-to-coast move.

Running from demons in WNY
I've had bulky car/truck axles and engines shipped to me...Secured to a pallet and sometimes crated to prevent damage....it's less expensive to drop it off and pick it up at the freight terminal... Or dropped off at a business with a loading dock or fork lift....About 10 years ago I shipped a disassembled 750 Royal Enfield in several boxes by Fedex....It this situation it was less expensive that freight...
