I have a friend who needs a car moved on the east coast. Anyone have an idea? I don't, but promised to ask here.

Edit:
The Landie is currently residing in Bethleham Pa. and needs to go to De Pere Wis.

A little more info, perhaps, Ron. East Coast is a big area. Budget, time constraint, type of car?

I'd get a Cottrell C-10 LTB. It'll hold ten cars and will easily hitch up to a Kenworth or Peterbuilt of his choice. He can get one around $100K for a one or two year old unit and he can make money moving cars all across the country.

Is the bottom bed level solid or can you park on it and work under the car? Looks like an alternative to a lift.

I'm pretty sure Ron's friend just wants a car moved.
Not start his own car hauling business.:D

I'll check with George later today. See, the fellow involved is his friend from the Guns N Rovers page. Suffice it to say, the car involved is a Landie. I believe the recipient is in upstate New York. The car is coming from two states or so south. That's all I know. I'll ask George which thread he got this info from.

From that description I would say either Peg's Trucking or the guy that BAMS50/Bob A. recently used. I believe that guy is from the York,PA area. An advantage to his equipment is that there would be no height limit. Some carriers have height restrictions that may apply in this case. (They also have length and road clearance requirements, but they wouldn't apply in this case.) Either contact BAMS50 or maybe he will post the contact information here.

Edit: Maybe Bob A (BAMS50) would like a road trip after the SDC International. If running, he could drive it. I guess that you would have to disconnect the four wheel drive to tow dolly it.

I just had Pegs haul a car from Bellingham to Novato, CA. Called on Monday of last week, picked up Thursday, delivered today. $550. Great driver and equipment (11 car hauler).

I've had good luck with Uship.com. You place the max you want to pay and shipping companies bid for your load. The trick is to wait a week as the bids tend to come in a bit lower as they start bidding for the load. My lark was moved from San Francisco area to Palm Springs for $225.00. You get to see feedback from others on the company. I've been quite pleased.

I tried uship recently and didn't get one reply, other than from uship telling me it was time to relist- and I didn't even name a price.

I'm trying to get a Wagonaire from CA to NY currently, but haven't gotten below $1500- and that's for a car that can drive on and off a transport. I've heard of cheaper, but haven't seen it yet. If anyone has any leads, I'd be glad to hear them. If not, I'll have to decide if it's worth biting the bullet and paying that much for a much wanted- but unrestored- car...

I used "Dependable" to move my Wagonaire from CA to AL. Driver was great, treated the old thing as well as he treated the high dollar Benz that had to come off to get mine down and off. $900 total. Mr. Biggs can atest to the driver and his professionalism.

I would love that deal, Bill! First thing I did was call Dependable, and they told me over $1400:( Keep in mind, these companies are mostly just brokers, so there's no telling who or what trucking company will pick it up. Still, I'm not worries about handling, they all do quite well.

Do you have a specific contact or number at Dependable? Might be worth another try.

I used McNutt for the Meteor. It came from Eugene OR. $1595 door to door including the extra $100 for a non-running car. DAS wanted $2250.

Okay, the vehicle is a Series three land rover, so it's possible there's height issues. If it has a rack that is. Otherwise, you might be surprised.

The Landie is currently residing in Bethleham Pa. and needs to go to De Pere Wis.

I think I'll post a link to this thread so that the young fella can look in on us old farts.;)

Thanks again everyone!:D

Bob, Kathy was the first contact at Dependable and then it was two different people and then the driver....not much help I know...can't believe prices have gone up that much in just a couple of months!
