Vehicle transport

Looking for reasonable transport company to pick up a truck for me in North Dakota and deliver to NC. Would like to skip the broker and go right to the actual transporter if possible. Have considered making the trip myself but would prefer to have it shipped.
Anyone have any suggestions or input?? thnaks

I used Reliable for my 63 C10 panel and they were top notch in every way. From now on I'll pay more and worry less.......

Re: Vehicle transport

I did contact Reliable but was told that "North Dakota was not a shipping lane they used"
I was able to find a transporter and it is on the way to me. I would guess be here first of the week. Looking forward to seeing it in person

Re: Vehicle transport

Thanks guys for the transport input
I ended up using a broker and got it here faster than I expected
Not sure what I am gonna do with it yet but didn't want to pass up the opportunity
to own a 60 model 4 door truck
Don't think I will get the chance again and actually surprised I was able to get one

Re: Vehicle transport

I always use uship.com for my vehicle transports. Check 'em out next time.

Re: Vehicle transport

I started my search at Uship and posted a listing for it
All the bids were approx. $500.00 over what I paid finding a broker on my own
It is a good website and easy to use just didn't work out for me

Re: Vehicle transport

Beware of guys that are only brokers half-heartedly trying to find a spot on a truck and make a few bucks. If they or the driver fail its hard to get your money back. Good references (hopefully you get some here are a must). Of the larger transporters I like Reliable. I wouldn't let Passport (Pisspoor) deliver a bicycle.

There was a place in Las Vegas - famous for stealing peoples money. So much so the media was going after him. Read the comments: https://www.yelp.com/biz/aaa-anytime-las-vegas
I of course was a victim. And he even lied about that.

At the time they had four stars, in fact there are three other places on-line that show they have four stars. I reported them to one of those places with a bill of lading, he denied I was a customer and the web site said "well that settles that". So there are even crooked reporting web sites. So be careful.
