Default Shipping help needed.

I am needing a Pro-Car shipped from Akron Ohio, to Franklin Kentucky. The car runs, but has no breaks. The guy I was hoping to use to do this, doesn't want to go to Akron, and I'm trying to avoid a big shipping company because of it not being drivable, its going to caust more, and from what I understand, it is in a residential area, and not much room to get in with a large truck and trailer. If anyone knows of anyone that might be willing to help me out, plese send me a PM. I would like to get it moved before it starts snowing a bunch up there. Thanks in advance for any help.

Josh

Drop PCS member Nicolas Yassan a PM. He uses a small Chicago based shipper that is quite reasonable for open transport and is accustomed to retrieving his oversize inop vehicles.

Another reasonable option given location is the transport guy Carl uses @ CW, based out of greater Cincinnati area. He recently hauled the inop '57 Superior Landaulet 3-way from NC to OH for new owner.

Default hauling an inop procar

Josh,
I used Sancrest to bring my 61 back home from Georgia. Of the companies I contacted they were the most reasonable. The 61 was bought home on an
open trailer. No problems with the company or the driver or the equipment.
I would not hesitate to call them again if I needed that type of service. For the money I spent I could have went and got the MM home myself. But letting
Sancrest bring it saved me 24 hours on the road and a nights stay in a motel.
What are you getting from the Akron area?
Mike

Have the brakes fixed, and then drive it home. The brakes need to be fixed anyway, so it will be money well spent.

That is the guy I was hoping to use, but I talked to Carl yesterday, and he said he probly won't do it cause he doesn't like to go to Akron for some reason. Carl said he lives on the Kentucky Virginia line. He was supose to call me back yesterday afternoon or today and give me his number, sence when I called him yesterday he was at a auction. Guess I'll have to call him back tomorrow and call the guy and see if I can talk him in to going. Carl was teezing me about buying a car from Akron. He said its probly in about 5 pieces. lol

I also got the contact info from Nicholas by the way. Thanks for that info.

Josh

I used Sancrest to ship the 76 M-M that I bought from Ron, and was very happy with there service. I am trying to ship the 71 Superior Sovereign Combo that I bought from a guy that I met that stopped by to see our cars in hudson. Its going to be a parts car, so the breaks won't be getting fixed.

I may also try talking to the company that the lady that bought the 76 M-M used to ship it to TX, as they seem to be a smaller company, and are located in KY.

Landaus and skirts are laying in the back.

Wow, that plate hasn't been used in about 15 years...I guess it hasn't been off the road for too long. I have a guy in southeast Michigan I can contact for you to see if he'll do it.

I do not recommend this approach at all. I have bought three out of state cars with brake issues, and all three times I had that same thought of fixing them locally and driving it home. And all three times I ended up being VERY glad that I elected to have the car shipped once it arrived.

Why? The reason is very simple. You are buying a car with known issues. You know the brakes are bad. But what else is bad that you DON'T know about??
