    I'm going to be moving to Adelaide in the next 2 months or so.

    I don't want to ride by bike down there (i've done the centre lots
    of times, and i would rather spend the k's on southern roads).

    I don't want to freight it down as bike will get damaged. Northline
    freight company up here smacked up my GSX250 eight years
    ago when I moved up here (it's typical of northern freight companies
    to badly handle freight). I would rather ride it down than use them.

    There is bike transportation by dealers... which is expensive. i may
    have to do with this option.

    the trains isn't available here yet.

    I'm transporting my furniture. Has anybody had any luck
    transporting their bike in the same truck as their furniture ?.

    what you could do is get a crate and crate it
    then it could go in the truck with the furniture

    or just the base (skid) depending on how big the truck is
    as you will prob have to do it on the truck as its a bit hard
    to move a heavy bike without the forklift

    no damage then :)

    and would be a lot cheaper than getting it freighted separately

    I have moved bikes and furniture, and at the same time, with Curtis Bros
    Van Lines.

    Look 'em up in www.whitepages.com.au

  4. I used Fergesson Racing last week to get Trike from Qld to Melbourne
    $300.

    EXCELLENT, they also had a few bikes on the trailer and stuff.
