    Anyone here have any idea how I can freight (who to call) a 72" diesel DC from Cape Cod MA to GA? I've been trying to sell it and me being here and the DC there, has just been a pain. I could have sold it 10x's over down here in GA by now!

    Thanks

    Thanks for the advice! I was back on Cape Cod last week...tried to find someone to ship the DC for me and every co. there was looking at me like I had 4 heads.

    Do you have a number or site for Forward air?

    Why/How is the DC in MA and you are in GA? :confused: You buying it new or do you already own it?

    I moved to GA from Cape Cod MA in January. Sold my home and my business along with most of my belongings and moved here. Took my 2 dogs and left my ex-wife behind! Bought a new house, started a new business. I just needed a change of scenery. It's been nice here in GA, mild winter weather is something I have longed for! I Just picked up my first high-end account today matter, so I'm on my way! Anyway, the DC was one of 2 that I had for a commercial account back on Cape Cod. I did not have the room to take it with me when I moved, so I left it with a buddy. I've got it advertised in the Truck trader in New England. I sold the second one to a GA resident that wanted it to cut his 3 acres! lol
    If I can ship it down here I may just keep it or at least I know of some people who would be interested in buying it.

    Try FreightQuote.com

    I'd call their 800 number and go through one of their operators. You will get a lower price that way.

    They will save you a bunch of dough on the freight charges.

    Go with Fed-Ex freight. (formally American Freightways) Most points are 1 to 2 days depending on mileage. E-Mail me and I will give you some info.
