I just had a motorcycle shipped from Virginia to Wyoming through J.C. Motors, and since there are no guides written about J.C. Motors (aka motorcycleshippers.com) written, I thought that I would share my experience with you. First the negatives: J.C. Motors claims to specialize in shipping motorcycles, but this is a little misleading. They actually contract the actual shipping out to a random trucking company who ships everything from workout equipment to surfboards. Furthermore, the price that is quoted on ebay is about $100 less than what they will actually ship it for. J.C. Motors customer service leaves a little to be desired, as well. When I booked my shipment, I talked to customer service agent Ed Moreti. I called Mr. Moreti a half dozen more times while my bike was enroute, leaving messages each time but was unable to get ahold of him and he doesnt return calls. And my final complaint is that the drivers leave very little notice when they are going to pick up the bike and drop it off. They gave the seller about 12 hours notice when they were going to pick it up and gave me about 15 minutes notice when it was going to be dropped off.
But with the negatives in mind there were definitely alot of positives: Being able to track the shipment as it traveled across the country was a nice piece of mind, and made receiving the shipment that much more exciting. The bike showed up over a week early and shipment was very fast, considering the distance involved. And the most important part of any delivery is the condition of the item upon arrival. My bike showed up in mint condition. If I were to ship another bike I might shop around a little bit more, but would consider using J.C. Motors again.
