Shipping long distance

Anyone bought a bike and had it shipped long distance? I've seen some nice Versys on ebay, but it seems like a risky proposition, both trusting the seller, sight unseen and the shipping seems expensive.

Used? No. New, yes from a dealer that I found on the internet, then had a few conversation on the phone, before purchasing the bike. Worked fine.

I have bought used bikes off ebay and craigslist but always picked them up in person. Kawasaki requires face to face transaction for new bikes. Forward Air provides reasonable shipping for bikes and furnishes shipping container.

I purchased a bike sight unseen through a forum I hang out on. I sent the money and had Haul Bikes deliver it to me. A little risky but buying any used vehicle requires a certain amount of trust. I probably would not do it through eBay or Craigslist.

In the end I was happy with the transaction.
