"We bought bikes in the USA to do a tour. Afterwards, we needed them taken cross country."
shipping from Richmond, Virginia Wilmington, California for $1,050.00
In August 2009 we did a tour of the east coast of the states on Harleys. We bought 3 bikes on Ebay and had them delivered to friends in Virginia. The plan was to ride the bikes for the vacation and then have them shipped home to New Zealand. We had to get them picked up in Virginia and delivered to a shipping company in Los Angeles. We found UShip on the internet and decided to try their services. We listed our requriements and had 4 or 5 people bid on the job. Prices varied a bit, but we found this to be a very good way to get a good fair price for the job. The information on the bidders was excellent and we were very happy with our choice. The guy was professional and did a great job.
Its pretty spooky using internet services especially when there are prized posessions and moeny involved.
I would highly recommend this service, and will use it again ourselves in the future.
