Shared Spring Trailer Delivery to Midwest?

Greetings All,


My trailer will be available for delivery in early April. I plan to have it delivered to a Midwest location in April or May. Would anyone like to coordinate a tandem delivery in this timeframe in the Midwest?


If you have an interest please private message me for possible coordination.


Thanks


Cheers
Rob

Hi,
We have an April build and we are going to BC in late June early July to pick up. Does that time work for you and any idea on cost. If you are committed to April or May no worries.

Thank you,
John

Delivery quote

Cdmixer,


The going rate is $3.00C/mi single trailer or $2.80C/mi if I can find a second. I am not sure but believe both parties pay the $2.80C/mi if piggybacking.

I am retired and live in Northern Washington and would entertain delivering an Escape trailer to the Midwest or Northeast USA for a fee that would be less than the commercial rates. Of course, I know nothing of the legalities/liabilities of this.

Wow, delivery has gotten a lot more expensive. My first 2 Escapes were delivered, but I managed to snag a shared delivery with each one, one was even with 3 owners. Not sure if ETI would release the trailer in Sumas to a non owner, nor the legalities of an incident. Too bad you missed that delivery to NY next month. But in reality you are only saving about $500 with a single shared, not sure about a double?

We briefly considered taking an individual up on an offer for delivery, and when I discussed with Tammy, you could tell that she was not thrilled about it, but it sounded like they would allow it if you really insisted. But of course made extremely clear that ETI would have no liability

I used UShip to deliver my trailer at the end of January from Sumas to Minneapolis. Super happy with the experience. Cost was just under US $1 per mile. www.uship.com

Cotto,


Wow, that is an amazing discount! Among other things, how does the Chilliwack to Sumas leg work?

For trailers delivered to buyers in the U.S., it is done in Sumas, about 2 blocks south of the border. There is a line item on your build sheet that is "Brokerage Fees" (It was $200 in 2015). That covers everything that ETI and their broker have to do to tow the trailer to the border, get the trailer through U.S. customs, and then connected to your tow vehicle (in the Bobs Burgers&Brew parking lot in Sumas), including a stack of paperwork handed to you that says what it is, that it has successfully gone through customs, and that it is yours.
