Question Motorcycle transport from NC to PA??

I'm looking at a cycle for the wife and it's located in NC, I'm in PA.

What would it roughly cost to ship this distance of about 550 miles?

Recommendations on who to call but at a good price?

It's just a suzuki, so too much for shipping would kill the deal...

I would call a few motorcycle dealers and see who they use. I know www.bikersdreamatl.com ships a lot of bikes around the country. Ask for Marcel he is the main sales guy down there.

Call GlobalTranz.com and ask for Brad. It will need to be on a pallet and wrapped.

I used Forward Air to have an engine shipped from NY to TN and it was reasonable. They have a motorcycle shipping service if you're close to an airport.

Call Gatto cycle shop - ask for Mark. I'm sure you're familiar with Gatto's as you're right in the neighborhood.
Tell him Tim - Bouyhunter told you to call, and ask what he recommends, or if he has anything coming in from the area that you can group the bike with.

He's a long time family friend.
PM me if you need more info.

Allied has been the cheapest and they do a good job. You don't have to have everything drained out of it like some of the others, We have customers drop the bikes off with us all the time Allied shows up puts the bike in a big crate and gone in ten minutes and we have never had or heard of any damage.
