Look here, I am a professional vehicle transporter, for .70 cents a mile, I'll fly out to Phoenix and drive it to you in VA. It's about 2500 miles according to Bing Maps. Airfare from Syracuse is 164.00, I'll buy gas from the proceeds, you pay for hotels and 1 meal per day, and parts and repairs if needed. DC to Syr return flight is 136.

I can leave on Oct 5th. Should be there no later than 10/10.

It is a difficult challenge to argue with a smart person.  It is a futile endeavor to argue with a stupid one.

check Hemmings for reputable transporters. forget the brokers. deal directly.

my 1.5 ton came from michigan. i intended to drive it home, but the brakes weren't good. i ended up using an insured pro hauler that i found in Hemmings, and he back-hauled it to nh for me. cost only $1000.00, but that was 4 years ago.

if the truck hasn't been driven much, i don't know that i'd want to drive it across country. it might be fine, but too many small things to go wrong.

I've had vehicles transported in the back of a moving van as Don C suggested (from my past experience,most economical for a longer move).
Also used my truck and trailer,and lastly I've taken a bus,(taking along tools), to pick up a vehicle .As long as the vehicle is safe being driven on the road ,the last option while not for everyone definitely is the most fun.:)

  • My Project Cars:I have two project cars at this time and they are two 1948 Plymouth,s. I have a coupe and a sedan that I love to drive more than the 2000 F250 Ford pickup or the 2007 Toyota we have also.

I just had a 48 Plymouth Sedan delivered today from MN to Alvin, Tx. and only cost me 700.00 dollars from door to door. The companies name is Centrekin trucking Inc. contact Charles at 281-234-7752 or Kevin at 281-234-7015. Got the quote from Classic Car Transport,LLC call Jeremy at 913-749-0936 or cell # 816-267-3869 and he can help you. Move took place with no hitches. They require 200.00 down and the rest COD. They did a good job for me.

How long did you have to wait before they picked it up from the seller?
