Try www.shippingmasters.com. He's a broker that uses various shippers. Depending on your source and destination, he'll offer you a bunch of options.

I've used him twice. Good service and good price.

You may incure some extra cost bringing it across the border though.

If your a HOG Member, some shippers offer discounts as well.

They did an excellent job ....for the most part they were on time. The drivers were very professional and the company answered the phone and all my questions without hassle. They also have a nice tracking facility where you can check the progress of your bike. The prices are very reasonable. However, I believe that you could find a better deal if you are friends with a local dealer. Maybe you can get the bike put in with a batch of bikes they are shipping. But, don't hesitate to use JC Motors, they done me right!

DAS has a terrible reputation in the collector car world also. A guy I know shipped a 32 ford Hot Rod with them and the driver actually went crusing with it during a layover and put 150 miles on it! They initially tried to deny that this happened, but the owner had documented the mileage with pics at pick-up, so they finally fessed-up when he showed them the pics.
