shipping a cruiser

has anybody shipped a 40 across the states? I was wondering if the 35 inch tires and such are going to be a problem? What did it cost? I'm looking to ship it from Cali to South Dakota.

thanks

Donald

I shipped an FJ-40 from MN to CO last summer. Cost me $500 + another $150 since it didn't run (standard at most of the shippers). I was flexible in my pick up and delivery dates, and that saved me a bundle, like $1000. There was a website I used where I basically emailed about 20-30 auto transporters and got quotes. Dumb and Dumber arrived at my house here in CO on Sept 11, at 730 in the morning wondering what the cool movie we were watching was!!

I'll try to see if I can't find the website, though I've seen others post here on this site and on the LCML.

yeah

looks like the Air Force thinks I will be more happy in Rapid City South Dakota! Thats the word for now, it could change at any time. I'm excited to get hooked up with the Dakota Cruisers club.

thinking about towing it

I was thinking about just pulling it behind my Dodge on a flatbed trailer. That's allot of wait for a 1500 truck though. The cruiser probably weighs about 4500 pounds doesn't it? and the trailer probably weighs about 3000, which is getting realy close to my limit.
