Yeah its about the same. I paid about $330 to ship my CBR from TN to MS. If you don't know already, you may wanna try Uship.com. Shipping companies and individuals on there bid on your shipment.

ooooooooooo is that typical?
Well it varies depending on who you choose to ship with. The guy that shipped my bike had a heavy duty dodge and strapped it down in the bed. I would say the important thing is that you pick a shipper with some experience in shipping bikes. But then again, shipping a bike is not that complicated.

Definitely, UShip is the place to go with if you're not able to get it yourself.

Has anyone ever bought a new bike at a dealer and have them ship it to your house? Does it come in a crate typically or does it depend on the shipping company?

Hmm, ~$350. That's cheaper than I thought it would be.
Thanks!

It usually doesn't come in a crate.
Most I've dealt with they are just strapped down to a trailer or the back of a truck. Like said before, some have enclosed trailers and some don't.

I just purchased my bike from Clinton Cycles in Maryland and had it shipped to Pennsylvania by Federal (Federal Warehouse Companies) for 512.00USD. That included 10,000USD in insurance and a 72.00USD extra charge for home delivery.

But, if you're a memeber of the AMA you get a huge discount and it costs something like 345 or 400USD.

The bike was shipped directly to my parents doorstep in perfect condition and the guy treated the bike like a baby. It was tied down in the back of a 20' box truck. I was told by Mary at Federal that they dont crate the bikes as that increases the risk of damage. (Due to stacking bikes upon bikes)
