Looking for someone with the proper truck and tie-downs to help deliver a motorcycle from NJ (Zipcode 07307) to Long Island (Zip 11590 )

Looking to spend under $100 if possible. Looking to do this today at 5pm or so. Please let me know if you or anyone you know does this service. Ideally it's someone who does this as either a side job or something like that, that knows how to do it. Bike is dry, and dry weight is 430lbs. Can be open air or enclosed delivery.

Matt is good. And I'm sure it will cost at least $200. Gas and tolls alone add up and then his time.
Driving in and out of NY on a Friday afternoon though. No gonna happen

You're looking at almost $40 in tolls alone not to mention gas there and back. I don't think anyone that isn't a close friend of yours would take on that challenge for $100.. Sorry

Yep.... it'd cost me $100 to drive down & back in my van.... more hauling a trailer. Rent a U-haul for the day and make the run yourself! -

DO Tie the bike in the truck!!! and don't forget braking/acceleration forces... I had a customer show up in riverhead from manhattan once in a big ryder box truck - thought he was fine just putting the bike up on the centerstand. DUH!

The poor bike got beat to shtuff- -must have been flopping around like a fresh-caught fish. everything scratched, dented, cracked.

Told him he probably wasn't smart enough to be riding.

Agreed. If a Bud did this for me I'd fweel cheap throwing him a C note. Some wouldn't take it, but that's a different kind of balance sheet

I have an enclosed trailer, with e-track. and a driver. But it cost money. Considering I just spent $1000 on maintaining the trailer with tires, brakes, battery, bearings, etc, etc, etc. There is no way this could be anywhere near what you're looking to spend. It's a full day round trip. plus gas tolls, lunch.

I doubt you'll find someone for less than $500 all inclusive of expenses.

Exactly what bike is it?.... (and do you still need it hauled?) it turns out I MIGHT be running down to Fairlawn, and I think that ZIP is Hoboken? IF it would fit in my van (not a big van...) and things work out I might be able.

Well, never heard anything so I took the car - $20-some in tolls, $29 in gas... Van would have been a bit more gas, so the loop would have likely cost me $60... 4 hours of my time.... (40/4, $10/hr.)

Anyway, OP is bashing those of us that responded, claiming he got it done for 150 (so, 90 for 4 hours 'labor'... $22.50, would be reasonable)

Like I said, I was making the trip anyway - would have done it for a few bucks for gas, but got no response, other than to be insulted on an American site.
