    I am editing this thread, as I am taking a sabatical from the shipping business for personal reasons. I thank all of the great customers I've met through here and will change this should something differ. For now I am not quoting or accepting new jobs. Thank You!

    Heading to Florida first week of April, and then Texas and Nevada in the end of April. Still room on each of those trips!

    Also, due to the frequency of peoples horror stories about Uship and such I should mention we are not just "some guy and a truck trying to make a buck". We have a real commercial location, and have all the required licenses for interstate trucking. We are a small business with over 10 years experience and many pleased customers.

    We are prompt and use veri-tracking so our customers know exactly where we are.

    And, lastly, I personally am an adventure rider!

    I have several spots available in my enclosed trailer coming from Florida to Michigan the second week of April. I can offer some great rates on that run!

    As for a website, I don't have one. 99% of my business has been word of mouth and I stay very busy, but I'm sure I'll eventually get one and will keep you in mind, thanks!

    As for other drivers, I'm not currently licensed to be a freight forwarder, so it's just our mom and pop operation for now. We kinda like staying small, as it allows us a lot of freedom to travel and do what we like.

    I will be pretty much circling the entire U.S. the end of this month and can offer some great discounted pricing if your shipment happens to fit in. I still have some room!

    Want to make an Alaska run? my buddy needs to get his bike from SC
    to Alaska, or at least Spokane for a ride starting Aug 1. Then back
    late August. Amother friend is joining me also, you could pick his bike
    up in Reno and bring them both up....

    For some reason I cannot change headline right now, but here is an upcoming run in the next few weeks:

    Florida, Texas, Nevada, California, Montana, Utah.

    I am near capacity for this run but have a few spaces available. I also am planning more runs (to other areas) for May, June, July.

    I have been talking to the guy that asked about Alaska and we are exploring some options. If it is a go we will post up another thread specifically for that run. I would be looking at a run that would take your bike to Alaska for the entire month of August. Pick up and drop off from the airport would be available, as would inside storage of your bike when you are not there. If anyone is interested in this possible run, please let me know.

    Upcoming Florida, Texas, Nevada, California, Montana trip is pretty much full. I have some space for parts.

    There are a few more West coast trips in the planning stages, and a Virgina/Washington D.C. run is coming up on a date yet TBD.

    Alaska in August is a strong possibility.
