All depends on when you're ready to ship. Are you shippiing? 

I have been shipping cars from Texas to Oregon for almost 3 years. I have not found anyone to transport them for that little per mile. Even Montway, open 2000 miles is over $1500 for a little Corvair.

 

NC to Oregon is almost 3K miles and strange thing, I just checked and it was CHEAPER even though more miles. (Under 1400.) Bob, you might check Montways shipping calculator: https://www.montway.com/

Montway, the worst of the worst is nothing but a broker the works closely with Uship basically doing the double broker deal. Now your paying double brokerage.  Deal with a car hauler direct without paying 200.00 to 400.00 brokerage fee that I heard that they are charging. I do not have 1st hand knowledge but that is what I have been hearing through my channels. Been hauling cars for 40 plus years owning 10 trucks till 6 years ago when I semi-retired. Oregon to Texas is an off route compare to route 90-80 corridor going east and west. Your route is tough one with one truck running that route compared to 20 running east and west.

I haven't found any independents that are less than 1/mile. If you know of any, please let me know. I can see what you are saying about the route. Also, my insurance won't cover the cars once it's on a trailer. (JC Taylor), I don't know of any that will. It's usually the responsibility of who is hauling the trailer. At least Montway has insurance as well as the drivers. They are not my first choice for sure, but I don't know of any good options.

 

My father owned a trucking business since the 70's and he always moved his own, but I've been moving most of them myself with a Tundra and his little car hauler. My Tundra is exactly like the one you pictured earlier and the car hauler is similar. Some of the cars are too big for the hauler though. ('79 LTC and a '57 Retractable).

What do you do that you have been shipping for 3 years from TX to OR? Another reason that route is high because of backhauls. I never would do that route because of that. A lot going to TX but not coming back to the west coast.

My father had a car collection in Texas. I live in Oregon. I've been liquidating his collection and moving some to Oregon. He had 7200 sq ft of garages plus a house, so also going through a lot of personal stuff as well. I would think that veggies come to Tx from CA at least. I have a buddy who drives for Saia and his route is Dallas to Southern CA. My dad lived in NH when he was a full-time trucker. He brought a lot of rust free southern cars home to NH on his empty trailer. Then he moved them to Tx when he retired.

 

Edit: I see, that was your point. A lot going to Tx, but not to the west coast...

If my "anticipated" Portland, Oregon to Hendersonville, NC is on a "favorable" west to east route, it would seem the rate to make that trip with a Corvair should be easily calculated.

I checked it and it was under 1400 from my home town (1 hour west of Portland, to Charlotte).

Montway is a broker and they do not insure cars. Their min cargo is 10k when you go into brokering. 10k does not go far with a 3 to 10 car hauler. I carried a 1 million cargo per truck when I was hauling. We had to have that to haul new cars. Thier video is showing car haulers with their name on it. Have to do further research.

Charlotte is 100 miles due east of me, I'm very, very close to Asheville, NC.

You can put your zip in the calculator. A Portland zip is 97232. It shouldn't vary the cost too much though.  There is a big Corvair presence in Oregon. My grandfather had them and even had an RV and I went to Rallys in Oregon and Cali when I was a kid. The entire west coast is big on them. I'm jealous it's cheaper than my shorter route. ;)

Thanks, I  have said that in my  ongoing search, many more Corvair Monzas have surfaced in the Portland or Seattle area.

Have to say their rates are appealing !

 

They were recommended to me by my pal in Oregon who sells a lot of cars. I have some reservations because they are a broker, but no one is able to recommend anyone else reasonable to me. Most are closer to 1.25 per mile to OR. Reliable is at least 500 or so more. I've been quoting enclosed for the big '57. I had a trucker booked to PU last weekend, but he broke down so I'm waiting on another.

The idea of you utilizing a hired carrier makes good sense !

I'll bet you could make a package deal with a car carrier company like in the pic that Country Travler  posted.

 

Maybe Country Travler could give you pointers as to how to make such a deal .

Thanks Bob. I don't have any others to ship at this time. Maybe in the future. Thanks!

They are farming their work to other carriers. They are brokers. Victoria, How much is transport and the broker fee when you had your cars moved? Do they break it down for you? What is the carriers name on the door when you have a car transported? I find carriers when I'm driving around town at car lots loading or unloading cars. Also, check truck stops and cruise the internet for independents. When I have a tough move, had one from my shop (Northern CA) to ND, the hardest move to do, I ran an ad on UShip and got it moved by a single trailer for 700.00. He was going there to pick a car up that he bought. I was getting prices from 1800.00 to 2k. Also on claims, some truck ins companies will not pay out a claim unless the car has ins. Never happened to me but it happened to others. My 1st new truck pictured when I was based in Coral Springs FL. 1996 Volvo.

www.weshipyourcar.com shipped one of my 1939 Buick Specials, that didn't even roll, from San Francisco to Kentucky for $1400

 

they were the only company that would handle it since it didn't roll

 

they did say I was on a "good route"

 

he went through AZ and NM for some reason, must have had other stops, because that's not "on the way"--was over 2500 miles total one-way

What type of trailer? How did they get it on and off? I would hire a flatbed at both ends. That is how this Chev was loaded and unloaded. Used a flatbed. Would not roll, steer and no brakes. No drivetrain. 1200 from CA to long island in 2010. Flatbed was 300.00 for both ends. So the bill was 1500.00 total

It wasn't a huge car hauler like you have, it was a trailer that fit maybe 4-5 cars.  The guy said he usually hauls new pop-up campers cross country.  They put it on with a forklift and unloaded it with go-jacks and a flatbed tow truck.  The forklift was included I guess (I never paid anything) and I paid the flatbed $65 to take it from my house to the shop (hauler couldn't get there anyway)

When we did cars from Copart, this is how they were loaded. Copart is an auction house for ins and donated vehicles.
