Check into auto transporter services. My father figure bought a bigrig flatbed trailer up in Idaho. The dealership had another customer that was buying a tractor bring the trailer down to California with him. Run some ads in local newspapers to find some body that may be driving out there with a pick up, that could bring it back for you.
Lots of inexpensive trailers around here (I live 2.5 hrs from Springfield)- I paid 1400 for one like the red one with brakes on 2 axles, a spare, new radial tires, new wheels and an upgraded tongue jack.
With that said, I'm about to close a deal on selling my Jeep and deliver it to Denver. The buyer is acutally in Logan UT. I may be able to arrange a one way trip for the trailer to either destination.
Hey, I just got back!
If you guys do a group buy and they are open trailers, the manufacturer will stack them and load them with a fork lift. They ship them like that regularly. I have to go to St. Louis by the 12th, and coming back empty. Price will depend on where I drop off and how many different stops. One stop to Ca. would be approximately $1000 for three trailers. Like I said ....approximately!!!! It might be cheaper, it just depends on how much of a pain in the ass it is to load and unload. I also have to charge enough to cover my deductable in case of an accident, otherwise I could really lose a lot of money!
Let me know what you guys are buying. I travel everywhere all the time...that's why I wasn't at TDS! I will deal, especially on trips where I'm "dead Heading."
Go2Guy...maybe I can help! I'm going to Salt Lake next week.
