Shipping a machine... who to use?

Postby cublo » Thu Jun 16, 2005 9:19 pm

Well, I've done it.... bought myself a machine just slightly faster than my Cub, got an old Russian sidecar bike. I have to get it shipped from Kansas to Connecticut. Can anybody suggest a shipper? It's on pallet 96" x 70" and weighs about 800#. I just had a 875 pound skid-steer machine shipped to me from Wisc. to CT for $175 by Central Freight, but they don't pick up in Kansas. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help. Hal in CT
Wish I had more time, more room, and more money!

CUBLO I don't remember which one it was but on one of the other tractor sites there was a forum of truckers who was looking for stuff to move and listing when they were going where. One of the more knowledgable ones will chime in even if it is after the big doings at big dogs.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
