    Looking for any information on shipping a bike from Anchorage to Sacramento next month. I did a google search and found a few, but its pretty confusing, and searching here didn't really give much information. The prices are all over the place! I bought a 08 650 V Strom while working up here and really kinda like it so looking into shipping it. Thanks in advance

    Check out Alaska AirCargo.ve used them and it worked great, especially this season when theya re not shipping fish southbound. About 500 bucks to the Seattle terminal, then you get to ride it some more to Sacramento.

    The Motorcycle Shop can handle everything from start to finish. You just drop your bike off, tell us where you want it to go and we handle everything else (including crating). We also have the lowest rates for shipping bikes of anyone in Alaska, and we do it all the time so your bike is safe with us. Give me or Chris a call at 907-561-1165 and we can set it up for you or get you a quote.

    Classic Motion in Anchorage crates/ships. It's not cheap. About $2,400 to San Diego.

    Southern CA through The Motorcycle Shop is going for about $1,500 right now, including crating. It changes all the time, but that's pretty typical.
