i work for FedEx Freight, but heres a site that will give you some comparable prices!

https://www.freightquote.com/Default.aspx

fedex is pricy, but weve had the best sevice, and fastest delivery times...
but since less $$ is better, check out that site.

Good Luck!

My friend Dave just purchased a '72 Husky 450 CR off of ebay. He went thru a shipping broker to get it from FL to PA. He was quoted $600

The guy he bought the bike from offered him a '72 Husky 450 WR for a good price and he bought tht one too. Shipping now was $800 for two bikes.

He got the guys name and contact info ( and also found out he could have saved 10% by dealing with him direct ). The guy was very good with keeping in touch and has a nice truck with enclosed trailer. He only hauls bikes.

Here's what Dave emailed to me
Natz Transport

352-342-5473 Larry Nataline



Call him for a quote. The driver said it would be cheaper to deal with them directly rather tan through a broker which is how I found them.

Had a very good experience with these guys, pricing is medium-high but they specialize in motorcycles, special pallet and trained movers included. They even throw in a dust cover.
