    Admin should make a Sticky for best transporters and most affordable.

    I’m looking to ship a Non-operating 93 Cobra from Decatur,AL to Colorado Springs. Prices are ranging from $1400-$2200. I was trying to get around the upper $900 range.

    Montway and Bears were quoting me $850-$1100 for that range. Open carrier.

    I paid about $1100 closed carrier for Las Vegas NV to Upstate SC.

    Problem is the car in non-operating. I’m good with an open carrier or enclosed for a privately owned.
    It’s always nice to find someone headed this way and they throw the car on for extra money.

    I used to haul cars for a couple years and it being non operating is going to be the problem. You're going to need a hauler with a winch and not many do and if they do it'll be expensive. They charge for having to hook it up. Also to get it off will be the next problem unless you have a way of pulling it off. Best of luck man.

    I appreciate that brother. I’m aware of the head that this is, but a deal I can’t pass up. I guess this is more of cringing and watching an accident type of deal lol.

    Does it at least roll? They can winch it up.

    a member on here suggested king of the road transportation. I filled out a quote for my ranger and it was near the bottom price wise of the quotes i've received.

    I won't be shipping the truck till july, so no personal experience

    Thanks everyone. I always check out UShip that was quoting me between $1,200-$2,400.
    I finally got a hold of the Broker and I’m right at $900. Brokers definitely are the way to go!

    I have heard that "dependable auto move" was a good mover...
