Need some help and direction

While driving down the PCH, we ended up in Eurika California. I ended up with a case of Pneumonia

Long story short, a friend of mine is picking the bike/sidecar and moving it down to Stockton Calif. I want to get in touch with someone and get it shipped back up to Wasilla

Any ideas please

So sorry to hear of your situation Bob Stay strong brother. Your health is important.. the ride can always wait.
American Fast Freight might be worth a call. The bike MIGHT need to be crated (tough for a hack, I know) and delivered to a port either In CA or WA. I would guess. Possibly get with J & K they have shipped bikes recently and may know the best route to take.

Sorry to hear this Bob, hope you get to feeling better soon. Like Jeff said it might still need to be crated and fluids drained but I'm sure some of the shipping experts can chime in and steer you in the right direction. Hope to see you back on the road here soon.

I used to work for a truck company and it will be expensive and hard to do because of the amount of room a hack takes up in a trailer. I would see if the Ural dealer in Alaska can help. They may ship the Urals with the sidecar attached and they may know dealer in California who has an extra crate or skid you could buy/use. They may know something special about hack shipping. My guess would be that it will have to be put in an enclosed crate for handling and then try Carlile or Lynden or the other trck companies up here. Might be about $2k or so to ship to Anchorage. Hope you feel better.

See if youncan get an independent truck driver to carry it with a partial load to Tacoma, drop it off at Pacific Alaska Freightways.
Give PAF dispatch a call, they might move the rig naked... 800 426 9940
.
why not take a couple weeks rest, heal yourself, and then continue on your journey?
..... you are retired, yes?

Ive always had good luck with lynden. Theyre always fairly reasonable price wise. Based roughly on other stuff ive shipped you could expect to drop $13-1500. Freight going north is always more expensive than if youre going south unfortunately. Best of luck.

Try calling Mike Disler, owner of On Demand Trucking, he moves a lot of stuff around.
Lot of fish goes outbound from Alaska this month, maybe a back haul could be arranged :

(907) 235-2634

Think we have a handle on it

Talked to a fellow from Ship My Ride. They are supposed to pick up the Raven in Eureka California. Build a pallet type container that will fit in a shipping container get it to Seattle Docks with arrival at Denali HD in Wasilla

I've been in the hospital for six days fighting this case of Pneumonia the Doctor doesn't think I'm going to be up for a long ride for a while.

Thanks for your thoughts

Good to hear things are looking up. How long before you are back on 2........er 3 wheels? You will be without it for a while anyway. What is the shipping estimate for wheels down in AK?
