    Hi,

    Trading my 87 4Runner for a 3.4L supercharger and fuel mods for my Tacoma. The 4Runner is dead reliable, but I don't have the time or desire to drive it 800 miles to Los Angeles area from Durango and then find a way back home.

    Starting to look into auto transport/shipping companies. Anyone have good experience with one company or another?

    Thanks,
    Nic

    You will hear people tell you uship, but that site can be a gamble....guys hauling without licenses etc etc...Still worth getting a quote and possibly working with someone through there. They have good buyer protection, like paypal...

    I work with truckers/freight companies all the time. Call the local guys, get a quote and trust them with moving your stuff.

    I remember I was researching this in the past and found a forum for car transport and shipping testimonials. cant seem to find it now though.
    I wouldn't trust any one bidding low from the horror stories I remember reading on that forum.. Late deliveries and damage from reloading and joy rides etc etc.. :D

    I need from Florida to Iowa.. anyone?:rofl

    here it is I think
