    I need a bid. I've got a 2002 M-B C32 AMG going to a guy in Boston. A 2009 MazdaSpeed3 coming back to Seattle from the same person in Boston.

    Open container is fine. I prefer the one man or family operation. Prefer same truck/operator the entire way without the cars going on/off a thousand times on 3 or 4 different trucks.

    I've got a guy who can do this based out of Denver. The negative there is I'd have to fly to Denver and drive the MS3 back to Seattle. Not that bad but I'd rather not.

    i'd do it for that, but i don't have a truck.


    i wonder if i could rent a truck and have the trip done in a week for less than $2500.....

    what if i just drove the cars both ways?

    I think it would hard to make any $$$ if you had to rent the hauler.

    As far as driving the cars both ways, both cars are crazy mint and low mileage. 50k on the M-B and 36k on the Mazda. Both have new windshields. Don't want 3k more miles on the cars.

    Appreciate the thought though.

    I have access to step decks and dropdecks.... but even a partial load like that would probably be closer to a $1.00 a mile.

    Man uship.com has some crazy rates. $850-ish to get the M-B to Boston and $12-hundo for the Mazda the other way.

    I just hate the fact that the cars get loaded/unloaded so many times by so many different peeps along the way. ugh.

    Yeah, one truck, one driver, and not someone just under bidding someone else for the sake of under bidding.

    Not enough profit for a week's work.

    And yes, I've all the proper tools to do it myself.


    Oh, and guys, don't forget a couple hundred in tolls across I-90; a little less if you don't use a trailer.

    Got it, thank you. Was $3400 a real bid? What kind of hauler are we talking about here?

    Yup.

    I've a tandem axle low boy that I've used for vehicles heavier than the C-Class, pulled behind my Super Duty.

    If you want to get into particulars, let's take it to PM's.

    Thanks.

    Try Marc Springer at http://snortnboartransport.com/ , you may have seen him on "Shipping Wars"? Great guy and he hauls a lot of vehicles, and he is local.
