Car Transport Information

Unread post by SANDU002 » Tue Nov 03, 2015 10:12 am

Okay folks, I have narrowed my list of possible transporters down and will start contacting them in January, so here is my plan for this:

1. Find out cost to ship (enclosed) from Portland to one location here in Md/Pa. I know there a bunch
of us from this area, the rates should be close for other areas close by (i.e. Chris Harper had
mentioned the Michigan area).

2. Find out how many cars they can put in a transport.

3. It am figuring $350 to fly home plus transport fees. Figure $1,000 roughly.

4. If you are interested, I would like to get a head count to see how many cars.

5. Payment/deposit due dates would be setup.

6. My thought would be for our cars to be picked up Sunday after the rally and delivered to my place
for pick up the following saturday. If someone in the group has room for 6-8 cars other than me,
let me know. They should be able to load are cars at the hotel.
This would allow us a full day in Portland area to see some more sights.
It would mean another night's stay at the hotel and flying home on Sunday. This would be
a group decision what day to ship/fly out of Portland.

Update: I have narrowed down the choices to 5 companies and waiting on 2 qoutes. There are a ton of shippers out there. I eliminated those that sub-contract, add/dropoff other orders not in our shipment, bad reviews or non-enclosed.

The list I have all are enclosed, one full load (6 cars), insured and use their trucks and drivers. Best price so far is around $1600 for each car. That rate is for Portland to Maryland/Pa. To get the best rate, we need to fill a truck. There is still plenty of time, but people need to commit by June 1, 2016. Transport company needs a 3/4 week advance notice. The transport will work with us on rate if they can fill more than one truck.

Chris Harper had mentioned some in/near the Michigan area also might be interested. Rates would be a little less than to the east coast, so lets hear from you guys if interested.

I would also like to keep a dialog going with the transport company to help get us the best rates. There is no dollar commitment now, but I do need to hear from people. Don't wait till late May to say your interested. The key is 6 cars per transport. The more trucks needed, the cheaper the rate.

I will assume that no one is interested in this anymore. I am planning on driving there and back, so if a group wants to still do this, you are on your own.
