Shipping

Hey guys,
If I wanted to ship something like a motorcycle trailer or motorcyle how would one go about doing that?
I know there are companies out there that crate your bike and ship, but wanted to know if you guys had any other ideas. Mainly thinking about my fold up trailer. Thanks

You'd need to contact a trucking company, i.e. Yellow Freight, AAA Cooper, etc.... I don't think UPS or FedEx ever deal with anything quite that large (I could be wrong, but as far as I know.....)

USF Holland might be another one to try. There is also a company called EGL.

Cheapest and best way would be to try to find someone trustworthy (preferably a buddy or friend) who needs to go in that direction or wouldn't mind the trip and pay their way.
