Shipping advice: Anchorage to Philadelphia

So I'm going to do the trip I've thought about for about twenty years: Pennsylvania to Alaska. I have no friends who ride and the wife has a 20 mile limit, so I'm going it alone. Due to time restraints and quite honestly, the boredom of doing it alone, my plan is to ride there and ship the bike home.

I know there have been threads regarding shipping but I couldn't find them. Can anyone recommend a shipping company they trust? And if anyone has ever shipped from Alaska to the lower 48 and has a ball park price, that would be great too.

Thanks

Scratch that idea. I got two quotes for shipping from Alaska. Both were over $2,600.

This is a beautiful trip but has it's hazards. I'd look a little harder for another bike to take the trip with. At least the Seattle up part.

Oops, I didn't mean a different bike, I meant a riding partner to get help when that truck blows you off the road or other break down.
