  • This a great transport company. Everyone is helpful, special thanks to Judy who went above and beyond to get my bike back from Haul Bikes and delivered to me asap. Tracking online is super cool. I won't ever waste my time using anyone else but FMT.

It was not reasonable for me to get it myself, so I knew that Federal Motorcycle Transport was recommended by the American Motorcycle Association, so I called them.

    Although a snowstorm delayed pick-up, my shipment still arrived on time. Communication was lacking at times, but my item was delivered in good shape, without hassle.
