He's a good guy and just thought he'd be a good source to explore.

Can't wait to get the skinny on your new project. We'll be at the cabin, day after Christmas, for a few days if you're in town.

I dont know if your looking for best price or a well known name, when I got my truck from CO, I put in a request in one of those online forms. Within minutes i had 100 brokers calling and emailing me ( got anoying quick)

The brokers dont own the trucks, they just secure the job then shop it out to truckers. The "deposit" is their cut (about $75).

Most of the quotes came in at close to a grand, I was able to get someone for a little under that.... I think around $750 Had no problems and was here within a week from being picked up.

After reading tons of nightmare stories, I went with Athena (954-892-6905)... who is a broker. The price she got wasn't the lowest but competitive. I believe that she has relationships with certain drivers and has shipped Defenders often. At the end of the day, I didn't want to skimp a hundred dollars for my new baby. She was great to work with and from the time I first called her till the time my D90 arrived was one week from Greensboro, NC to Los Angeles. Arrived in one piece, no damage which is all I could ask for. I'd definitely use her again.

I just went through a broker, 4 corners, and was luck to get Straight Line carrier. Good price and fully enclosed carrier!

IMHO, no matter how you procure the transit (broker or some national name brand firm), it will be outsourced to an accredited independent trucker. The brokers put into the system the pick up and drop off cities, the date of pickup, the number of days if you have a window for pickup, and how much you are willing to pay. The truckers scroll through the list of available jobs on their cellphone app and books the offer that works best for their route. It is like "buy it now" on eBay. Then the broker sends the trucker's contact info to you and vice versa. For a data point, I bid $700 (this was about $20 higher than the other Denver to east coast bids) to ship from Denver to DC a few months ago on an open trailer. Seven days from inquire to arrival to my house. You have the option to specify an enclosed trailer, but expect to put in a higher bid price to gain interest or wait a longer time.

No, I didn't buy it but my brother did. He got the 93 NAS 110 with the 4.6/auto that was on Ebay. He is going to ship it to me so that I can do what-ever it needs?

This truck was an East coast truck originally, didn't like the blonds in California.....Wanted a good Southern Girl, but then again who doesn't, LOL
