What is the best/cheapest way to ship a bike?

I am looking at buying a bike from Fargo, ND. DAS has shipping from there to here for $610 in 12-16 days. $10,000 of insurance, and they take care of packing and everything.

Anyone have any suggestions?



Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

I have bought and sold a couple bikes that where shipped fowardair. Cost about $350 total. You need to bring the bike to one of there shipping spots which is usually near an airport and they will have a crate waiting for you. Roll the bike in strap it down with 4 tie downs and lock it up with 2 combonation locks and you are set. The first bike I sent got there in 25 hours after me locking the crate up near O'hare. The second one took 3 days. If you have any more questions pm me.
