Hasn't anyone here watched the TV show "Shipping Wars"? I think it's on A&E channel.

Shipping

I bought a teardrop a couple years ago and found USHIP.COM to be very reasonable and have a good rating system. You register for free, then put in what you need moved from point A to B, size, etc. Then you get bids back. uShip - The Online Shipping Marketplace - Ship Freight, Furniture, Cars or Moves

However, the owners ended up driving it to me for 350.00.

Good luck!

Stacy

Very, very generous of Francesca! But, I agree with your decision Cricket. You LIVE in Scamp country... Minnesota. I know your egg is out there just waiting for you to find it. IMHO, I'd rather put the money into the asset (trailer), rather than the expense (shipping, etc.)

Good luck on your egg hunt!

The mishaps all seem to be with odd stuff, and that's what makes the show entertaining, otherwise it would be boring by today's television watching standards. I had a pickup shipped from Arizona to upstate NY about 7 years ago, set it up through a broker, it was on a car carrier truck, cost $1000. Only problem I had with the whole deal was the drivers were Mexicans, didn't speak good English, and didn't follow directions to my location. I spent all one morning trying to find them when they went to the wrong place and didn't know where they were. No GPS I guess. When I worked for Ryder, our new trucks were delivered by casual drivers for a large transport company. One of them told me a story about one driver who was delivering a new motorhome and used it for his own vacation travels on the way to it's destination. Another driver was sent to the right name city, but in the wrong state halfway across the country. I had thought about doing the truck delivery thing when I retired, but ended up with a part time job 2 miles from home that has worked out OK.

A Harley won't tow a Scamp 13???? That settles it- I'm making my husband keep his Honda Trail 90!

Keep us posted on the search!

I had my 19' delivered from the Escape factory in BC to my door in Southern California for a very reasonable price from a small trucking company that Escape uses for their deliveries. Since Seattle is very close I would surely have them quote it. They have a lot of experience shipping Eggs. Good luck!
