    I am interested in shipping three dual sport bikes from Reno NV to Albuquerque NM.

    It seems the prices are super high. Does anyone have any advice?

    That's amazingly helpful. I bet the OP had never considered that :baldy


    Other than uship as already mentioned, try the appropriate regionals forum here, maybe someone with a trailer is going that way and would take them for a small donation.


    also, topic probably isn't appropriate for ride reports

    Good luck!

    I used Haulbikes one time and had a no issues with them. They wanted information about the bike and gave me a quote. They stuck to that quote. The only downside is they normally ship bikes back to one of two warehoueses until a truck is loaded up with enough bikes. Took about three weeks for the bike to move out of their warehouse.

    As was stated previously, getting a fellow inmate with a trailer that is heading that way would be best and likely cheaper. Haulbikes transports all their bikes in an enclosed tractor trailer combination so there were no issues with the environment (rain in my case since it was winter).
