I found a transporter with UShip:

to move my Hyundai from South Carolina to Wayne in Kansas. That move
went very smoothly. The shippers that list themselves under UShip
strive to maintain good customer ratings just as under eBay.

Re: [EVDL] Auto Transporting?

hey bob, just go to www.movecars.com and get quotes on shipping. be sure to
disclose to shippers that the vehicle is not running as they will charge a
premium for an inoperable car. mike young from big wonderful new york state

I paid a good bit more than that about 10 years ago - $700, IIRC - but the
operation was largely hassle-free. The only hitch was that I live on a
small dead end road, so the transport driver asked to meet me at a
supermarket parking lot a few miles away (good thing the EV was in running
condition). I used a company called AAAdvantage Auto Transport.

All that I talked to said they'd charge more for non-running vehicles. The
say this is because they're picking up and dropping off all across the
country, so at every stop they have to remove the vehicles blocking the one
to be dropped off. It's more work to winch a dead one off and on the
transport.

Re: [EVDL] Auto Transporting?

When I bought my EV this summer, it was close enough that driving to pick it
up myself was feasible (500 miles each way). I rented a U-Haul car hauler
one-way and hauled it with my 3/4 ton Suburban (a handy vehicle to have for
stuff like this).

It cost me $140 for the trailer (and $250 gas for the Suburban!)

I transported my EV a little different, but it work out very good. I flew
to the Electric Fuel Propulsion Inc that was in Troy, Michigan back in April
of 1976 to pick up my EV which is call Transformer I which I am still
driving today which has been upgraded and modified.

After I drove the EV around the Detroit area, I drove it back to the company
and right on to a lift rack, the same type that is use in service stations.
A large U-Haul truck was back up to the lift and I drove it in. The U-Haul
was the right size where the front bumper press against the front panel and
the tires had just enough room to go between the fender wells.

Blocking was fasten down to the floor between the fender walls and tires.
Addition blocking was place at the rear tires. A press pack of heavy duty
cardboard was place behind the rear bumpers, where the U-Haul doors would
press against the bumpers and doors.

The bumpers on this EV are double wall steel with a 1.5 inch thick rubber
inlay, could not do this with the plastic bumpers, so that type of car would
have to be chain down to the floor D-rings by the frame.

It took me 2 day's to drive from Troy to Great Falls, Montana with no
problems.

Re: [EVDL] Auto Transporting?

If you have any jeeping or car racing buddies, they'd probably help you out
with a car hauler, and for a 6-pack and fuel, use their truck to pull it.
If it's local, that is. Find one that just did an upgrade to his rig, he's
probably dying to try it out.
