    What's the most economical way to ship a bike East ( central MN) to Pacific Northwest. I know uship but does anyone have direct shippers info. Trying to avoid the uship site..

    I used the Haulbikes.com site and they run deals over the summer for $425 from anywhere in the U.S. to anywhere in the U.S - at least they did last summer. No packing or crating needed by you. Very easy. But they were late on my delivery by oh, maybe 20-30 days. The bike arrived undamaged and except for being late, I was happy. You also get some insurance at this price.

    I use UShip and then get people's contact information that way. Then you have their card and can call them and see if they will be in a certain area at a certain time etc for future purchases. But Uship has always given me a fair price.

    If you can do the crating, deliver the crated bike to the local terminal and don't mind paying by USPS money order, Forward Air should do it for under $300.

    Every shipping method is a tradeoff, you pays your money and takes your pick. FA is usually the cheapest, but the biggest P.I.T.A., Haulbikes the most convenient but also the slowest, UShip the least predictable and you still have to crate the machine but, the most flexibility.
