What's the best/cheapest way of doing this? Anyone have any price ranges that they've previously shipped with? The bike is a ninja 650. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Tried calling Andlauer Transport but it seems they don't do this kind of thing anymore.

Tried Canadian Freightways and they quoted me $589 + HST. Seems prices have risen!

I'm wondering if it's even worth shipping and if maybe I should sell here, and buy a new bike there. Good excuse to upgrade!

if it goes bussiness to bussiness its a lot cheaper. we ship bikes from bac east all the time. we shipped out one to ontario ( north Ontario somewhere) uncrated ( it was tied to a skid) I think it was about $400. that was in the spring

That's still cheaper than what I paid 3 years ago - close to 900 for mine. Mind you I got ripped, but it was comp'ed so I didn't really research as well as I should've.

I'm curious to find out which shipper you end up using.

Look up J&R Hall. They do a lot of freight from Ontario to here and back, but a smaller company. If you can let it sit until they have spare room, you might save a buck or two. They have a transfer place south of Vancouver somewhere.
Tilbury, near the cement plant.

If you are moving they can put the bike in with your personal effects. We used United Van lines, and they simply put the bike in the truck with all of our furniture etc. Simply was charged by the weight. if you are moving for a new job or a transfer you can write off the cost of the move out of your taxes too.:coffee

Only problem is that i'm shipping my effects via Air Canada Cargo (have a friend that can get me a sweet deal) - I'm considering trailering it across the country and do a road trip, but renting a trailer and hitch is going set me back about $350 already, so if its not too much more i rather just crate it.

In case anyone is interested, i'm moving the bike with Ray's Moving and Storage for $900 + tax (including FSC) which includes a pickup at my front door.
