I used UShip to ship my trailer from the dealer in KY to the port in GA to have it shipped to Korea.
It's was good, but the really professional guys will cost ya'.
It's free to get quotes, so why not set up a bid and see what you get? Just be sure to tell them EXACTLY what you want and why.

I'm thinking about it, we are in Bel Air so practically neighbours. The problem is the time. A 4-6 day time frame is getting hard to allocate this time of year. Maybe the end of November, just thinking at this point.

I've never used them, but I would think that you would want someone who is somewhat used to this work- even if you have to pay a little more. If nothing else, they'd have the insurance.

The other option is to roll the dice with CraigsList- but that would leave me more nervous than anything else.

I'd consider it (), but I've never pulled a travel trailer of any length- only my fifth wheel. I have a hitch, but don't know the first thing about weight-distributing hitches and sway control. (Well, a little about sway control- my pop-up camper had a simple friction bar.) And, of course- I'm not insured to pull for money! And, I'd want expenses covered for a round-trip instead of just one-way like the pros would likely expect.
A would to the wise do not use craigslist for anything!

It worked perfectly selling our 30 ft. Award TT.

Slight hijack, but in general/at all? Or for services?

We use it regularly to sell stuff. And my sister uses it as her discount shopping mall. Generally have been decent experiences.

At all. There are good experiences out there but craigslist is high risk. I have seen many people fall victim to deceptive practices including being robbed on the exchange, given counterfeit money fake checks, and stolen goods. Just a warning. Now back to the really purpose of this thread...lol

This will be my last post on it, too.

But- yes, that stuff happens but really, it's the minority of the tons of business that people do over CL. The problem is- the bad stuff is sensationalized and it's easy to believe that the moment you dip your toe into CL, you're going to be instantly murdered in your sleep or swindled out of all of your money. In my *opinion*, the reality is yes it happens, but it's unlikely. Same with eBay. Heck, even the classified ads in newspapers leave you open to the same risk.

Unfortunately Caveat Emptor is the rule of the day when buying from the Internet.

I would try uship as well.

As for CL. Ive sold many, many thousands of dollars of hay, equipment and vehicles, and junk-with very good success. And ive bought many thousands of dollars of vehicles , equipment and junk off of it. Just carry a gun and deal in cash! At least it works for me!
