Long way indeed - Yahoo Maps shows about 2200 miles from Knoxville to Bakersfield. Sad thing is, all but a few hundred are on I 40.

I shipped an F250 from BC to NS - hard to get much further than that. Even had to go by ferry from Van. Island to mainland BC, then by train, then truck right to my door. Only cost $1500 Cdn - reasonable when you consider the distance.

I can;t remember the co. name - but I know I found it with a google search.

A friend of mine just shipped a car from California to Portland, ME by train for $550. You have to pick it up at the nearest freight terminal, but atleast it would get it to a manageable place.

I will check with my dad, but I think www.tractor.com or something like that has privatately owned trucker's looking to haul stuff when they are running empty. You have to fit it in their schedule, but the rates are usually fair. I will let you know for sure the next time I talk to him about the website.

*edit* I reply again tonight, cause that link is to a art web page. :rolleyes:

I shipped a 4Runner from So. Cal to Indy a couple years ago. $750

Although when it arrived it would not start. (it was driven onto the truck in CA) The dumba$$ driver tried to jump start it and crossed up the cables. Blew most all fuses, 3 relays.

I got my money back because this company was doing a significant amount of business with the auction I work for. They got canned anyway when the transportation manager heard about the problems.

I'll post later the names of companies that we use now.
