    Need to ship a Jeep - PA to AZ

    I need to get my Jeep shipped back to Phx area from Erie, PA. Transport companies want ~$1000. Not worth it. If anyone has a connection that would be more in the $500 range, please let me know.

    1998 Grand Cherokee - stock.

    Talk to Jeepindad (Ed Shoemaker aka Ed Shoe on fb). He works for an auto transport company. In the past, I've been able to get quotes from his company at about half of what others wanted for the same job.

    Good luck finding something less than a grand. Over 2000 miles. Probably cost over $400 in gas to drive it back.

    i've had some bids at $750-$800. But I don't know how reliable these guys are. Jeepindad has it posted for me. Thanks.

    If that bid is from a shipping broker it's probably best to just ignore it. They might try to get you to commit to that price, but that doesn't mean they have found a transport company who is actually willing to do it for that amount. You'll wait forever and nothing will ever come of it.

    For what it's worth I paid $1500 to ship from NJ to AZ last month. $0.60/mile.

    This^, and then when they do find a trucker to do it, and you are committed because you have run out of time they will bump you another $200 or so.

    You might try Uship. I tried to use it but waited too long and ran out of time.
    Burn it and beat on it

    When I was looking at a corporate move a couple years ago from Phoenix to Tampa it was about $500 per vehicle for a 2,200 mile trip.
