Hauling - Need a CJ shipped - Suggestions - NEWBIE!

First, let me start off by saying Im a newbie... here. Been buildin and wheelin forever, but never had to ship a rig, I always drove. I have driven the west coast in 4x rigs a dozen times but now I have a strict timeframe.

I have a 85 CJ-7.

I need to get it from AZ to WA

Any ideas for having it delivered? its 76 inches overall height an has 33's

I am worried about some reviews on some shipping companies. Has anybody used someone successfully without spending a fortune.

I figure my cost to drive it with airfare and gas etc is approx 650 - 700, but a breakdown possibility and winter conditions throughout the mountains makes time an issue so shipping is definitely my first choice.

If you have used someone, what was your cost, experience, who did you use?

Any information would be really helpful.

-Jake

I had my scrambler shipped a few years back from Tx to mt. Ran about 950.... went out for bid on web site. I didn't take the cheapest but they were easy to work with. Most brokers are good...the driver had a lot of offers to buy it while in transit.

There's a user on here named Hotshot who may be able to help. He runs a local trucking company that I believe runs this route. You might want to shoot him a PM.

I think you could go on U Ship and see what the going rate is there and then negotiate from that point with a dedicated carrier. It will probably be about $750 on U Ship, so you might find a professional carrier in the $900 range.

I shipped my son's ranger from Ohio to Ft Hood Tx using Mercury transport, ran about $800. No problems but a weather delay. Ron
