Looking to have an old DT50 shipped from Washington state to Georgia. The bike was only $500 and the few top shipping company results are quoting up to a grand, it's not a pristine bike.

Are there better priced options that wouldn't involve the current owner stripping bike down and putting in boxes?

I sold a bike on here and it shipped from cali to Illinois and I tjink the guy used uship and it was around $300

Uship is the way to go. I have used them at least 5 times now. Every time was a huge success and less than 400 every time. You will get some commercial bids that are high( 700-1500) just ignore those and wait for the local drivers to bid.

As matter of fact, I have a roller coming from IN to TX picking up tomorrow and deliver next Tues for $200 through Uship

hey - where at in Washington and where to in Georgia? I live in Billings Montana and am headed to Elkins, WV the 1st week in October. Big truck / trailer gig - If it is really easy peasy - I would do it for free etc. Been driving / running my business for 25+ years and have hauled a ton of bikes for folks - as long as I can make it along the regular rout...ish!

Bike is in Oak Harbor, WA 98277, and I'm just outside Atlanta. If you think you could potentially swing it, could you drop me a message at i_dig_dirt@agirlandhertractor.com?
