Anyone traveling through with a secure truck or trailer?
Just sent a set of wheels and tires to Eastern KY from Oklahoma this week thru fastenal, was under $200. Just sayin
I have found that Pirate Shipping is your best bet.
You'd do better putting this in the "Wanted" section. The transporters who are HAMB members or vendors check there regularly.
Not sure about this. As one reply who used Fastenall, was informative. I don’t know if da34guy would peruse there wanted section for a similar topic
They have the US split into 2 zones, East & West and they won't ship anything from zone to zone, it has to be within the same zone. Thanks though.
Most of Colorado including Denver is in the Eastern zone so Fastenal should work. I figured the split may have been the Miss. river but it's way West.
Take a look at the map;
Then @DiabloMann should check out the HAMB O'Dex. And I can guarantee that if he looks at the Wanted section of the classifieds and types in "transportation" in the search bar, he's going to see a whole lot of people who have been looking for ways to get stuff to and from places. I'd be willing to bet that the guys offering transportation services check that wanted section pretty regularly. When I moved a set of front and back hubs and drums from Des Moines to my place in Tennessee, I called Bill's Auto Works and he hooked me up with David Phelps who was right in the vicinity. I connected with David and in no time, we had a done deal. Easy peasey.
Thanks. Yea a closer look and it's in the Eastern Zone. I requested a quote
I shipped a convertible top through Greyhound a few years ago and I was very surprised at how cheap and easy it was.
6 months ago I sold a set of high dollar pin drive knockoff wheels with Excelsiors to a man in Prescott AZ. The buyer arranged for me to meet a hauler in Salina where we wrapped them in blankets and put them in the back of his pickup. Said he was going straight thru to Prescott and they got there safely.
