  • Need enclosed carrier recommendation

    Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced carrier to go from southern Oregon to Minnesota? We need someone with an enclosed trailer. We will be shipping a single car. Thanks.

    Scott,

    You may want to check with LTL (less than load) carriers in your area. I have has excellent success with one here in Richmond that have brough me everything from my Avanti to a 8 ton tracked front end loader.

    The only issue is that you have to be able to accomodate a 65 foot rig on each end and have access to a loading dock to rollback for loading and unloading.

        Scott; I was given this recommendation from a classic Stude. owner who actually used him. He said this is a smaller family owned business, not a nationwide Corp. that off's the loads to others and, he is a great guy!
        Howard Miller Transport 1-800 996 6959 I think he is in Maine and goes everywhere.
        Hope this helps, Rich.
