I need to ship my 150r from scottsdale arizona to washington. if it was a pibike, i would just tear it down and put in a couple boxes but i want to keep it together. What would be the cheapest way to get it there and how?

If you crate it I am sure I can help you get it shipped at a very good rate,, but it would need to be either crated, of tied down on a pallet and then covered,, box it then wrap it with shrink wrap etc.

I have shipped a 250f. What I did was built a wooden crate with eyelets for tiedowns, Then I shipped it with a freight company (we do get a special rate though) it was $350.00 from CA to NY, plus about $45.00 in wood to build the crate.

My friend owns a golf cart business so i can get like a pallet from him. Do i just tie down it onto the pallet and cover with shrink wrap or is there more to it?

you can do it that way but the downside to it is the bike is not protected at all.


do you think i could put the bike on the pallet and tie it down then built a box frame around it with some wood? That sounds like it would be much easier than builting a crate from scratch

I just ship a CR500 rolling chassis (that I had for sale). For the Crate- I just Went to my local dealer and asked for a Original bike Shipping box. Luckily for me- they (the dealer) were just about to assemble a CRF230L for the floor. I was able to get all the hardware, and the crate wrapping for free!



I believe the buyer used Yellow freight for the shipper...?













Of course it wasn't a total shoe in... Need a little creatatvity...
