Yes, GREAT IDEA!.
Bids range $1200-$1500 to transport my F150 from NC to Seattle, but my MAJOR problem is the delivery windows are wide (3 to 5 days) and I (or someone I trust) must sign for my vehicle when the carrier delivers it. So, I'd have to arrive 3 to 5 days early just to make sure I'm there when the vehicle arrives.
When you were making arrangements, did you find shorter delivery windows?
Did you personally sign for your vehicle?
Did you consider transport to ETI (instead of Seattle)?
