How to ship a piece of machinery 1000 miles

Postby jimboz » Wed Nov 01, 2017 6:23 am

Anyone know of a good cheap way to get a pickup truck or small trailer size load shipped without having to go to the site? I'm looking at buying a aerator that's 1000 miles away and don't want to go out there myself.

Where from and where to?
Depending where you are, if it's a permit load or not, and where it's going, a friend of mine in Frankfort ky hauls cars , trucks and all kinds of other things as far away as Chicago, NYC, and farther west. He's hauled 3 different vehicles for me. It's helpful if he can get a back load.
I can give you his Ph # via pm if you want to speak with him.

I enjoy the trips, but there's been a few things I've passed on because it just wasn't economical or the timing didn't suit me.

You should just deliver stuff for me, seeing as how much free time you have and all...
