    If you are brave, fly out and drive back.:D

    There are several ways. If you are lucky you can find someone who is making a trip with an empty trailer. I did see some people on eBay offering trailering services. Generally individuals. Can't remember how they listed.

    Maybe check Craig's list here and there for someone.

    When I sold my 65 Chevy pickup it was to a guy in New Hampshire, so it was basically a coast to coast transport. He had it hauled by one of those transport companies you see advertising on auto trader or ebay. Guy showed up to get it with a 1 ton dodge and a 4 car trailer (seems overloaded but it's his rig). Seems like he paid $800 for the cross country trip so I would figur around 1/2 for what you want.

    Guy said it took 8 days to get the truck, and it was still tarped up like when it left.

    I had my K5 transported from Virginia Beach, VA to Dallas for $850. It was put on a big car hauler and arrived in 2 days.

    I used http://www.ezhauling.com/

    I got about a dozen quotes and they were below the average price, but not quite the cheapest.

    There is another site, I believe it was 123 movers, they will get you quotes from several different companies. After reading up on some of the sites and talking to the people I picked EZ Haulers due to the price and they were friendly and professional.

    ebay search

    use search words "auto transportor" most companys are brokers...they take your order and sell it...usuaklly makeinh 100-150 for their cut. on high $$ vehicles go with a company not a broker. I shipped a M1008 CUCV to ma. the owner paid $700 about I think.
