I remember reading Sea Knight's story from one of those trips...truly awesome. This might be the way to go.

Sad Iggy...that should have been driven over to my driveway!

I'd go with Crash service...that's what I want to do when I retire!

Thanks for all the info everyone. I've been finding a few local that are in good shape but there is one out of state that is calling my name if I can swing it.

I'll keep you posted.

If you are still shopping around, I used Eric at 1st Haul Auto Haul for shipping Becky's TDI last year. He was recommended by several folks on Mud and it was a good experience for me overall (except when the guy dropping the car off at my house asked me how much I paid for it...).

You might also want to consider flying out and driving it home. Much of that will depend upon where you find it, flight schedules and price. IIRC, the guy who bought my 40 found a one-way flight on Frontier for about $100.

Thumbs up

I don't remember the company name (the vast majority of the online guys are brokers anyway ... they'll arrange an independent truck and collect a deposit and then you pay the driver the balance upon delivery), but I shipped my Triumph Spitfire from LA to a Denver 12 months ago for $525. Enclosed trailer, door to door and it rode with nothing but BMW's and Mercedes! Couldn't have been easier or better!

Well this must be why he can't find time to finish the story!

I like this idea!

I did ship my 55 from Sante Fe, but I do not remember who did. I can look up who did it and the amount, but this was back in '08. Diesel was a little more reasonable then...
