Good shipping company?

This may not be the right place to ask this, but can anyone recommend a good motorcycle shipping company? My 2012 Vstrom is getting a sibling, a 2012 Aprilia Shiver.....need to get it from FL to AZ. :biggrinjester:

I used the system called UShip. I got a good deal that time. UShip is a kind of ebay for shipments.

Ride safe!

I am doing a ride in June from Florida to Alaska. My wife is joining us for the return leg from Vancover BC back to Fl. We recently made arrangements to ship her bike from Fort Lauderdale to Takoma WA for $550. Seemed like the best deal I could find and it goes from warehouse to warehouse in a week. Here is their info, I hope this helps. One thing I did find is that the prices when we googled for shipping companies seemed to go up quite a bit when we actually spoke with the shipping companies.

I've read RRs where people have used UShip when doing one direction of the TAT, with positive results.
