Shipped safely to the door without costing a fortune

Hey, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your help.

Over the past two years and several months I’ve been involved in many motorcycle restoration projects. A good percentage of which have sold over the internet and through nation wide advertising and required shipping.

Initially, I was either delivering bikes myself or I was using Forward Air, only because their rates were pretty much, unbeatable. However, the price of gas went through the roof, Forward Air had a huge rate increase for motorcycle shipping (because of damage claims) and so that ended all that.

Upon the rate increase timeframe, I had a gentleman request shipping to his door as he did not live anywhere near a Forward Air terminal.

I was faced with finding a shipping company that could handle this demand, not tear up my bike and do it without costing a fortune or I’d lose the sale and the buyer for future sales.

Well, it was a lot easier than I thought!

I found Daily Direct on the internet and proceeded to schedule the delivery. Everyone was super helpful and professional to boot. Carol called to let me know when the driver was going to be there to pick the bike up and gave me an approximate timeframe when it would reach it’s delivery point. K.C. was the driver whom picked the bike up from me. He took the time to tell me a little bit about Daily Direct and its history, some of the folks who started it and then showed me the truck and the tie down systems that the company uses. He too was extremely friendly and very professional. I was sold at that point!!! Then I watched the care he took in handling and inspecting the bike. K.C. and I, together, inspected the bike and carefully noted any defects! He then loaded the bike and really treated it as though it was his own! When the bike reached the final destination, I received a call from the buyer, who also expressed his positive opinion of the professionalism, care and exceptionally friendly service he received from Daily Direct as well.

Since that shipment, I’ve used Daily Direct whenever possible and certainly try to sell the company even though I’m not the one who ultimately has to make the shipping decision.

1. I first explain the professionalism, care and courtesy that I’ve always received from the folks who work with you at Daily Direct.

2. Go over the benefits of not having to crate the bike (pay for the crating process) and having it personally cared for and moved about by real people as though it was their own and not by forklifts, etc.

3. Tell them about the $20K insurance coverage offered by Daily Direct versus the 50 cents a pound Forward Air covers as though the bike was just a piece of scrap metal.

4. Review the advantages of having the bike delivered to their home or place of business by truck versus having to drive to and from an air terminal, uncrate a motorcycle, load and unload it from their vehicle, having to connect the battery and service the bike fluids and risk damaging it, in one way or another, before they even get to ride it.
Then to top it all off…I can go on line and give them an accurate quote within seconds of finding out where they live!

Hell, I could be a salesman for Daily Direct without even trying…it’s so easy to sell when you truly believe in something that works like Daily Direct. Your company has CONSISTENTLY exceeded my service expectations!
That’s what GOOD BUSINESS is all about…

Daily Direct and all of the folks who work for that company ROCK! THANK YOU!

I look forward to doing more and more business with you and your company in the future.

Please share this letter and extend my personal “thanks” to K.C.(hope that’s how you spell his name) I know he’s been out with a bad shoulder and hope he stays with the company, Carol, Anna, (both very helpful and courteous on the telephone) and who could forget Terry (man, that guy has some good stories to tell)! All of these folks are tremendous assets to Daily Direct and should be recognized for their on going efforts to keep the company as SOLID as it is!

Thanks again,

Smooth delivery of my ATV

Hey Dennis,

Just wanted to let you know that everything went smooth. The ATV was delivered on Fri 4-13. Al was very helpful; we had to unload in a parking lot at the corner of my street. Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for all the quick responses and updates.

Thanks again

Way above and beyond the call of duty

Thanks for your help in arranging the transport of my 25-bike collection from San Diego to Coos Bay, OR. It was a pleasure dealing with you and everything went smoothly and professionally. As I told you when I first contacted you about this move, I never even checked any other shippers. Since I first used your company at the Las Vegas auction, I have been impressed by the equipment and the service.

There was a problem when the bikes got to Oregon. Much to my chagrin, we found that the truck could not get out to my new house because of restricted road and sharp turns. That’s when your professionalism really showed. Your driver, Don, could have contractually just dropped off the bikes in Coos Bay and gone on his way. Instead, he negotiated an hourly rate with me and we spent the rest of the day procuring a trailer and shuttling the bikes out to the house one load at a time, finally finishing after dark. Don took the lead in getting the job done, and he really went way above and beyond the call of duty. I can’t thank him and Daily Direct enough for hanging in there with me, and will continue to recommend your company to any and all.

What a nice suprise

Hey Daily Direct,
My 1980 Yamaha got here today, Tuesday, – ahead of schedule. What a nice surprise. Your driver, Don, called with plenty of time in advance and stayed in touch from that point on. He was here at around 5:30 PM or shortly later which was after closing for the business address that was to receive the bike. It seems he was held up in Sioux City with a guy who didn’t want to roll a bike, to be picked-up, out to the truck while it was raining. Don delivered my bike right to my home with no problem for me and evidently none for him either. He sure was a nice fella to deal with. I’d have him deliver to or for me anytime.

Thanks again to you and Don for the great service. I’d be happy to recommend your operation, especially with Don doing the deliveries, anytime.
Yours truly,

Le Mars, IA.



They used kid gloves to handle my bike

Everything was in better shape when Roger rolled my new baby off the truck. Heck, there wasn’t even duct on it! It says in the web site that the drivers take such good care of the customers bikes because they ride themselves. Well, after meeting my driver and seeing the kid gloves he used in handling my bike, it’s no wonder you folks are at the top of your industry. Thanks so much for providing such excellent service. From the initial phone contact, thru the pickup in Arizona, the countless email communications with my constantly changing schedule and the final delivery in Florida, this is one company I’ll be proud to recommend to anyone that needs their bike moved. You folks take the stress out of moving, and you do all the driving to boot! Compliments on a job well done.

Smooth delivery to the border

I just wanted to let you know that the bike arrived at the border as planned, and everything went smoothly. Your driver Jeff was first class in his professionalism, and thoughtfulness. I couldn’t have hoped for better service. Also the seller in Texas made a comment on how pleased he was with how the pick up went, and his service. Thank you for a job well done.
