    Question Anybody ever shipped a Bike to Houston TX?

    Hello, I'm considering buying a Bike in another State and have it shipped here (since the dealer here pissed me off... I will somewhere else). Has anybody ever shipped a bike to Texas and if Yes, which company.


    Thanks... be careful out there -

    I've never shipped to Texas, but I did ship from RI to Oregon this past summer. The company is Keyboard shipping.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    I had a friend that use Keyboard Motorcycle Shipping and had good results.

    I know the friend would recommend the company!

    He originally started out using a different company and was having trouble with them as they kept changing the pick up and delivery... and they were not very friendly either.

    Smile Bike shipping

    I shipped my bike from VA to CO this summer, with UShip.com. I wasn't familiar with Uship, but it's sort of the eBay of transporters. You list the item you need shipped, along with the pickup and drop-off location. Then, different transporters will "bid" on the job. You can then check their references and feedback from past customers, also given on the website.

    I ended up paying 30% less than the online quotes from some of the big name bike shippers, and the bike arrived in excellent condition. Only took 3 or 4 days. The guy had 7 bikes in an enclosed trailer!!

    That was my experience with UShip....YMMV, but I was pleased with the service from my shipper.
