How to ship a suburban from buffalo to philly

I am "supposed" to pick it up in person but I don't have the time. Quotes have been in the 700-800 range which seems insane for a 400 mile trip.

Have you looked into independent vehicle movers on Uship? I got my 110 from Charleston to West Georgia for about 350 if I recall. A guy with a 20 year old dually and a low-boy moved it. He was happy to get the money and I was happy to get my truck. He may or may not have had all of his teeth. He also wasn't wearing a shirt.

Jeez Ron....I paid $800 for my big ol Ford Excursion from Dallas to DC

Should be an easy proposition - try Uship on line.....but really $1/mile is the rough going rate

Ron, call my buddy Pete. +1 (954) 274-5214

Tell him we know each other through Land Rovers and he'll get you the best quote possible.

I will try Pete. If that fails, then Uship I guess. Maybe I can score some college kid looking to get home for thanksgiving to drive it.

Yeah, but they may want you to bake a turkey and take him back to school on Sunday after Thanksgiving...

Ron, I paid $350 from Columbus, Oh to Clt (LR3), and $850 from LA to Clt ('87 'burb) if that helps, and fuel is lower now. Your issue will be most shippers are full North to South this time of year, NY to Fl runs...
