    I have a friend that owns a 72' Camaro, only problem is that the car is in New York and he lives in Colorado. Just wanted to know if anybody has some good covered shipping companies? If you have used them how much did it cost .....

    Thanks for the Help, Shane- /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I checked out Maps on Yahoo and it figured from the central part of Colorado to NY City, NY, at a little over 1800 miles.

    The hotshot driver I use will charge you something like .55 per mile, one way.

    From CO to NY will run around $1000 to use the driver I use. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Oh, made a mistake, it was $825, for 2400 and some miles and the carrier was Able Auto Transport, phone #877-407-6302. They say they will meet or beat any competitior's quote. I had good luck with them.

    That's not bad...for a car. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    The hotshot I used for my past trucks charges .55 per mile, for a car.

    A full size truck will get hauled for .70 per mile.

    I had my driver pick up Brown Turd in Bountiful, Utah and bring it home for $700.

    The '82 K30 from Shawn got delivered to me for $400.

    The '84 M1008 I won thru bidding on gsaauctions.com was a deal that the driver and I worked for me to fix/remodel some stuff in his home, but that deal fell thru. I ended up paying him to deliver this truck to me for $800, from El Paso.

    Be careful when my dad shipped my old CJ2A with a sb327 m22 trans etc to my brother in Fla. The car hauler company must have taken it out a played with it some. Had a bunch more miles on it and it was beat to Sh!t. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
