Anyone had any experience with shipping a pull behind trailer? Contemplating a trailer from a fellow board member, but he live 1200 miles from me. Any advice on how to do this or who you have used?
Thanks for your trouble.

Just had a disassembled trailer shipped up to me. It was trucked to Seattle then drop shipped to a barge line to Alaska.

The best and cheapest way to go is take the tongue off and strap the entire deal down to a pallet. Shrink wrap or build corner posts and shrink wrap around that.

Cheapest way is to get it to a regional trucking carriers yard and do the same for pick up but you can also go door to door. Find out what trucking carriers have a hub in your area and give them a call.

I had my Hannigan shipped from Utah to Texas via Keyboard Shippers. They came highly recommended and I was happy. They have special racks to haul MC's with, and they had my trailer strapped and tied up real secure. $500.00 total.

Uship.com is the way to go. Or try setting up a relay. There's actually one in the process from Rodger,Ar to Florida.

I had an Escapade shipped from Texas To me In Alabama about 600 miles by AAA Cooper trucking for $137.00, shrink wrapped and on a pallet with tongue attached. It is cheaper to ship to a business than to your house if you can. I didn't have any problems and would do it again.
