    Hi guys;
    Need to find a motorcycle shipper for 4 bikes, Surrey to Creston end of March.
    I have reached out to Uship so far, but any other leads would be great!

    Cheers

    I just put out a bid for shipping from Langley to Calgary for 1 bike with Shiply. I received 7 replies in 5 days, all seemed very professional and the prices were very good 4 of them around 300.00

    I presume that these shippers through Shiply will have insurance to cover cost of bike if something happens enroute?

    I haven’t got that far yet. Have only had one quote from Shiply, and discovered that quote is from a household mover that wants my bikes on pallets. No thanks!!

    The search continues!

    These are question that you can ask the shipper when they provide the quote. My bike deal fell through so never used one of them.

    Search Bruno’s Transport on Facebook and give him a call or message him there. He’s from Montreal, and travels Montreal-Calgary every 2 weeks. He may do Vancouver as well, not sure. He specializes in motorcycles, but will also do snowmobiles, furniture, etc.

    Nice, I was just coming here to see if anyone was making a trip from YYC to south central Ontario. I bought a used No Mar from a guy in Lethbridge and it’s in Calgary now at a friends house.

    I’ll give Bruno’s a shout.

    I have used hasslefreeshipping.ca a decent amount of times. Best prices, though a bit slow. They do door-to-door.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I have contacted a couple of them and trying to work out dates.
    Keep the ideas coming.
