Fisher shipping just took my 110 to Minnesota. I got some quotes from them and their prices seem reasonable. I think they charge like 1300 cross country

Frank,

Why not just fly up and drive it back?

I'm trying to figure what makes the most sense...I got a quote from 2 companies that is close to what I'd spend in fuel and food, but want to check with other companies and people that have shipped trucks

Most transport companies use independants for the actual transport. They don't own the trucks or employ the drivers. They use a website Centraldispatch.com to put the jobs out there for the drivers to bid on. That puts the headache of zigzaging the rig all over to keep it full on the transporter not the brokering company.

Ditto, they have moved a rover for me three times always done a good job althought this last one they were late picking up. Saturday morning instead of Friday afternoon. Still delivered the truck on the day they said though. They have always been about 200.00 dollars less than everyone else. Cut out the Broker what ever you do.
