    Hi All:

    I'll be shipping a 71 Ranchero from Southern Indiana to Los Angeles. Does anyone have a shipper who is good AND reasonably priced?

    The range so for has been about $800 to $1500.

    Thanks

    I priced shipping from Spokane to Phx and my quotes were on the high end of your range. This particular vehicle was a rolling chassis, tires held air, but engine and trans were in the bed and would have to be tied down. Loose parts are a no-no with the transport folks. The car was a numbers matching 71 Cobra 429 CJ 4 speed, shaker car originally grabber green metallic with factory buckets and a ribbon tach. It looked great in pictures, but up close was swelling with corrosion at every piece of exposed metal.

    Man, rates have gone up since I shipped my car from OK to NC.
    An open trailer transport can be on the low side, but if your car is in nice shape I would ship it enclosed trailer; probably $1,500.
    Can you ask them how much per mile they are charging you for the trip

    I selected a broker who said they can get it here for $1k. We'll see if they get any offers at that rate. The lowest was $745, the higher $1600. That's for open transport.
    The lowest enclosed was $1400.
