    Fastenal is now doing store-to-store transport for the general public. Maybe worth looking into!

    Anyone have experience with importing a motorcycle from Canada?
    The process doesn't seem to bad but I would like to ask a question or 2 if someone has experience with the process.

    I am in the process of shipping a bike cross country (from NY to CA) using Keyboard M/C shippers: http://www.keyboardmotorcycleshipping.com

    My first time using them. They quoted me much less than what I got from lesser quality shippers on uShip.com

    I'll update here once I see the end results.

    As a follow up to my earlier post, I contracted Keyboard M/C shipping to handle transport of my "new to me" bike from NY to CA. The bike arrived yesterday, finally! They palletize bike during shipping, i.e. its strapped to an individual platform which prevents accidental tip overs and minimizes potential for damage. Bike arrived in perfect condition, albeit a bit dusty.

    So here is my take: they get an A for value (quality vs. price). It cost me $750 to ship the bike enclosed cross country. The lowest offer on uShip.com was about $1100 enclosed.
    The only downside is the time it took, which was about a month but I should take into account the adverse weather conditions back east during winter. Keyboard is my new go to shipper.

    I need some basic information on these shipping guys. Does the tank need to be empty? What are their strict requirements? Does covered or uncovered make a difference? Thanks for the input.
