    Did you have any luck? I am also looking for west coast to east coast shipper. Thanks.
  3. There are 3 QUALITY transporters here on the Hamb : BenD, Racinman & Myself. We all have ads in the Hamb O Dex section, where you can see hundreds of references from other Hambers who have used our service in the past.
    Here is mine!

    I will be in Northern California mid to late September with the enclosed single car trailer. Send me a message & I will be glad to give you a price quote, although you are probably looking for an open trailer for a lower price being that it is a roller.
    God Bless

  4. Scott,

    In general - a roller costs more to ship than a running car - more labor involved.

    A 1951 Desoto can be over 17 feet long - that is a big car to ship.

    Most multi car trailers are not equipped with winches.

    If someone is hauling to Houston, TX from Portland, OR - they are headed down I-5
    to Southern California - then east along I-10.

    Unless they have a vehicle in Houston to pick up - they will opt out of hauling for you
    in favor of a full trip from Portland to Los Angeles & then Los Angeles east to Florida
    along I-10.

    You mention Uship .....

    Anymore that is a transport broker board tied into Ebay - commissions on shipments
    can be 25% or more between what Uship & an auto transport broker take off the top.

    Uship now charges folks looking for a hauler an additional fee ( in some cases ).
