    For some reason I thought Captain Kyle did some of this or knows others that do. Maybe reach out to him?

    Stay away from Uship. I bought a bike (an 05 Vmax), and had it delivered. It showed up with a dent in the faux tank,

    I have a service that takes pictures and does an accounting of the condition. They will NOT look at it and make a decision about buying it for you. You have to have that worked out on your own. With my dealer discount the cost is $525 for most areas of the US (a sale going right now).

    U-Ship is a joke, I also have a couple horror stories, but let's just say the bikes arrived with damage that the shipper did not fess up to. Luckily, I had taken pictures of both incidents, so I was not held responsible. The problem with U-Ship is you have no idea whose going to show up, one guy showed up at my house in Dallas Tx, to ship a bike to Chicago, and didn't even have a single tie down strap! I had to supply them! :(

    Try going to a dealer. They used to do it at the Harley dealer where I worked. They usually have good shipping crates and boxes as well as established shipping partners.

    Guess that's why it's called U-Ship?

    The service we use and have the account with is Haul Bikes. That's all they do! They have done more then a dozen Vmax's for me with no issues.

    I used Keyboard coming from Texas to New York. No problems. They strap it to it's own platform that they wheel out of the tractor trailer and lower it to the ground and push it off. Cost me $500.00. Would use again if I had a need.
