Bike transport from Ontario to BC???

Hi all

Can anyone recommend or help with getting a bike from Ontario to Vancouver sometime in the New Year? I'm in no rush but January would be best.

Anyone have experience in shipping companies? I don't mind air or rail or road options as long as it arrives safely!

Thanks in advance

I have a bike in Alberta I'd like to get to Ontario.

Any retired folks want to make a few bucks driving back and forth?

I used Allied Van Lines a moving company from Toronto to Calgary a few years ago. It was very professional loading a pan type skid was used and tie downs in 4 places. Several photos taken at pick up and absolutely no damage. It was insured for damage but none noted.

It saved several days of vacation and allowed me to attend a family wedding in Toronto the weekend I would have left. I shipped one way and spent time riding on the good stuff all the way home.

I believe they are pretty flexible as to schedules as they have many trucks and the fork lifted pan was added to a less than loaded truck. It arrived on time with no surprizes. I loaded the bike with my riding gear and saved lugging it through the airports. Please note they ship with minimal fuel less than a quarter tank.

I had to have it picked up at a commercial site and then received it at the Allied warehouse in Calgary during business hours. I believe I paid $600.00 to move the bike .

I hope this helps.
