I had one shipped in '08, from Topeka Kansas, to North Louisiana. It cost me about $550. So, I figure it would cost you well over $1000.
Here are a few things I learned. MOST of the online guys are just brokers. They usually deal with lots of truckers, and give prices based on who will be in that area, who can make the haul. The broker gets part of the price, the trucker gets the rest.
When you put your haul up for bids, you will usually get lots of bids, with prices from reasonable to very unreasonable.
Some haulers are open, like they deliver new vehicles to the dealers with. But, for more $$, there are enclosed haulers.
I'm sure there are good reliable haulers, with good prices and some who are less than reliable, just like in any other type of business.
I think if I needed another haul, I'd try to find a guy with his own rig, and not go thru a broker. I'd try to get all the info I could about him, and try to talk to some of his past customers.
There is a guy who hauls, who posts over on the PY site. I'll try to find a link to post.
OK, here's the guy from the PY site. But, looks like he is out on the West coast right now. Don't know when he'll be back East. Hey, it might not hurt to contact him. He probably knows some other good haulers who may be in your area.
Here's just a couple of broker companies where you can get a quote. The names are similar, but have different phone numbers. Might be the same--don't know.
This co claims to be one of the largest privately owned shippers.
Hey, good luck ! Hope you get it delivered safe, quick, and cheap.
