Motorcycles Moving to Alaska

Motorcycles to Alaska

What do you do if you need to get four high-end touring motorcycles from Florida to Alaska?

 In June of 2009, employees of a moving company based in Florida were planning the ride of a lifetime—an adventure to remember. 

Their equipment was in the class of “pride and joy.” Four champions of the road, real “dressers,” plus sidecars and saddlebags—polished, perfect road machines. This should have been a magazine feature for Harley-Davidson. 

The group planned to bike the last frontier, ride down the AlCan highway, taking their time to get back across the country to Florida in the opposite corner of the continent. 

This would be a life-changing trip. The right equipment was all. How do you get all your bikes, and all you’ve invested in this trip, safely and reliably to Alaska so it will be ready to go when you get there? 

Remember, these guys are in the moving industry themselves. So they knew who to call: Hi-Line Moving Services, the experts – the Alaska moving company to call when transporting household goods to Alaska from anywhere in the lower 48. 

“Shipping by highway to Alaska provided them better service than going by sea—and was certainly a lot safer for their bikes,” says Art Groux, Chief Operating Officer for Hi-Line Moving Services. Each motorcycle and sidecar was individually strapped to a pallet and loaded into a truck and trailer customized for the Alaska route. On the appointed day, right on schedule, the riders met up with their wheels in Anchorage and hit the road. 

The ones who know the business of moving to Alaska know Hi-Line when it comes to—or goes to—Alaska. Expert, one-step moving household goods, crated goods, cars and, oh yeah, motorcycles.
