Shipping?

I'm not sure where to put this so maybe a mod or someone here can help me out. I'm buying an '84 R100 from North Carolina and need to get it shipped to here in the SF Bay Area in California. I've never had a bike shipped before and kind of don't know where to begin. I've placed it on uship.com, but so far I'm not getting any bites.

If you don't mind shipping "airport to airport" try Air Forward. They are the cheapest I am aware of. Around $3-400

I shipped an r75/5 from LA to ATL with Keyboard Carriers a couple of years ago - think is was around 500.

+1 on Uship.

I was very very clear about who I was going to select from Uship. Proven history hauling high end bikes etc. Some of these people have never transported bikes before.
