I live in Tennessee but purchased my Harley in Illinois. I had seen the bike previously on a vist to the area and I've dealt with this particular Harley Dealer before. I didn't decide to purchase the bike until a few weeks after I returned to TN. I called the dealer, cut the deal over the phone and intended to leave the bike there until I could pick it up. Turned out I wanted the bike here sooner than I could personally go get it so I put out a bid for having it shipped. Through uShip, I found Eagle Globe and Anchor shippers. They gave me the right price for the delivery plus 99% of their reviews were positive. I spoke with the owner, Terry, several times and he was very accommodating and very personable. The price was a big influence on my but I also have to trust the shipper. I had to go with my gut on that. In the end, my gut was right. I'd do it again with the same shipper.
