Miami to Memphis

Need to get a D90 from Miami to Memphis. Does anyone have a recommendation for a licensed and insured freighter? Thanks in advance.

There are a few threads on this topic, but I have used both Alpine Auto and DAS to ship cars before. Didn't have any trouble with either one. One of them delivered to my neighborhood with the transporter and the other dropped off at a depot and then used a local towing company to get it to my house.

Steer clear of uship low-ballers. Look for the guys with the middle-of-the-road bids and good reputations.

I was going to offer to drive it up this weekend if you buy the ticket home but I ran the numbers and It's probably $250 in gas and another $250 or so for a plane ticket home. Assuming no breakdowns that's still not saving you a whole lot.

Play with the dates if you are able, it can make a big difference in the price.

A couple of years ago I was driving my 110s from Miami to Little Rock a couple of times a month. Good times.

If you are going to use Uship make sure you ask exactly what they plan to use to ship your truck. It's surprising what will show up to lug your pride and joy cross country. I am starting to steer away from Uship for vehicles.
