I live in Key West. I had just purchased a brand new, $23,000 BMW R1200 Adventure from a dealer up in Ft. Lauderdale....4 hours away. With only 235 miles on it....the fuel pump quit. I...was not happy. BMW paid to have the bike carried back to the dealer....but the return trip...was on me. I wasn't happy about that either. The dealer had recommended a different carrier. He...made me wait 5 days..over Labor Day weekend....and then told me that he was going to make me wait again. That's when I contacted U SHIP. JVT TRANSPORTATION picked up my bike in a nice, clean ENCLOSED trailer, brought it back to me immediatly.....and called me all along the way to keep me updated, (which I didn't expect.) Same price...as the original idiot who kept jerking me. I am VERY impressed with how this went. What they don't know...is I used to operate a motorcycle dealership up north. I know the difference between Bozos and professionals. JVT were professionals. I liked the ENCLOSED trailer over the back of a damn pick up truck out in the rain. I loved how clean it was. I loved how they used BRAND NEW tie down straps. And I especially loved the fact that they didn't lie to me. After waiting patiently for over a week to get my brand new bike back.....I contacted U Ship last night late. When I woke up this morning...I already had 3 quotes from them. By 9 am....I had made a decision...an by noon...my bike was in JVT's trailer. What else is there? This REALLY worked PERFECTLY for me!
