I am looking to ship a motorcycle from Upstate NY to Connecticut, about a 5 hour drive. Would like to find a shipping company that uses enclosed shipping. Any suggestions? I called one company and they said up to 4 weeks.

Did a fine job shipping my bike in an enclosed trailer from Colorado to New York.

Spring special $450 from anywhere to anywhere.

Try this service... Like ebay in reverse, sort of... Post a shipping job, include your requirements (that it is enclosed) and people bid to get your job.

I've shipped twice with this service and both times, everything worked out perfectly...

I used haulbikes to ship my bike from Las Vegas to Greenville, SC. Excellent service.

The difference between theory and practice, in theory, is less than the difference between theory and practice, in practice.
