Ok, so I did this last year and it worked out very well. I am driving to NJ from TX the first week of July. My pick up bed is empty and I will pick up anything I can fit in it. I drive straight through to a family members house in Maryland, so your parts are never left in the truck in a hotel parking lot. I have tarps and can cover your items if needed. I deliver straight to your door. I will travel any route and all I ask is for gas and toll money. I did this for two HAMB members last year and I can give you their contact info.
