Moto Transport Needed. Phoenix to San Diego

I've just picked up a couple of bikes in exchange for some labor for a friend of mine out here in Phoenix. Neither one runs. They need to find their way to San Diego, as do I, so I'm just kind of fishing for options or ideas here. I'm on my KLR, so I'd either need something that could haul three bikes, or someone to haul two while I ride the KLR. As of now I'm looking at renting a cargo truck from Budget.

Any ideas?

Two Yamaha Seca 650s. Well, and my KLR.

I've pretty much come to the conclusion that the truck rental is going to be the way to go.

If you can't find a FF around here making that trip you could put out some bids for transport on uship.com.

I paid $400 to have a bike come from Chicago to LA and Chicago to Austin and had a great experience with both shipments. I would think you could get it much cheaper considering the mileage differences, these guys are usually already making the trip and try to fill up their rigs when possible.
At least then you know if it's cheaper to rent a truck one way, or drive a rental there and back.


Good luck, I had a Seca back in the day - fun bike.
