    Bill will give you a call and give you a real estimate, the auto-generated website estimates don't factor in things like ^ clill pointed out. I got a huge kick out of having a professional shipper move this thing that I bought.

    You could have the Silver Jesus picking your van up.

    Though I'd rather have the Texas chick with the nice rack.

    You did not mention if you want enclosed or not, but I guess open if you refer to DAS. You also did not state how important date ranges are. I have used a lot of companies for enclosed transport but don't know open carriers very well. But the one I used, DAS, I would not use again.

    I submitted a quote and got a call from Bill about 20 minutes later. The automated e-mail listed the quote at 1,000, but because of the pickup location, the price was actually 1,350. Which is not too bad. I am impressed with him compared to the others. The only 'concern', but I am sure it is with the others, is the time of pickup. Because it is not in a major city in MT it may take awhile picking up the vehicle.

    Don't know if I mentioned it, but its a 1984 Vanagon Camper in excellent shape.

    I've never shipped a car but I was going to say I have heard of both Intercity and Reliable before.

    I used UShip to ship my 6000lb 1-ton truck from Arkansas to Florida. Cost me right around $600. Local guy pulled my crew dually and a F450 behind is Chevy 2500 - it must have been quite the site but he got it done. Just wait for lower bids to come through - I had a couple of bids come through at over $2000 and I said hell no - it would have been cheaper to fly up and drive it back -or even Uhaul it back on a trailer. Try Uship - you might be surprised.
