SO?   
heres the deal,
I am buying a 1/2 ton shortbed pickup in san antonio texas...  looking to get it transported to Topeka kansas..  750 miles one way...  checked internet estimats are about 1,000.00 :o :o.   from major companies..  WOW!!     
Do any of you have a contact that does this kind of work?  that would do it for less money.. Maybe somebody headed that way loaded and looking for a load to bring back..  Thanks!!..

Did you get your 1/2 ton shortbed pickup transported till now? If not then you can contact car transport Sarasota team for the fast and reliable transportation service. My cousin had used their service while transporting his car from California to Sarasota. He really had a good experience with them. As the team provides transportation service in the overall US and overseas too, you can contact the experts without any worry. Hope this can help you. Good Luck!

No I didnt,
It was  a performance vehicle with a 454 motor that would need to be rebuilt and modified.. 
By the time I bought it, transported it, then rebuilt motor and modiifed suspension.........   
Just didt work out logistically ??? ???.. 

I can buy a roller or driver a lot closer, and put the money in it, and have a better machine, I think ;D...

Thanks for the help!!

Iíve had to pass on a lot of stuff Iíd really like to have due to this. Seems about $1.50 or so a loaded mile is average. One of these days Iíll end up doing it Iím sure, a couple grand doesnít buy a lot of rust repair and there is a awful lot of solid stuff out west. :)
