I'm in need for info on who to use to move a haunt that I just bought. Looks like I'll need 2 48' trailers. Pick-up in Shippensburg, PA. and drop off in St. Joseph, MO.

Thanks
Andrew

Can you call a moving company or a shipping company. They should be able to give you some quotes.

any international moving company can do it can do it such as mayflower, atlas van lines, united van lines. i worked for atlas for 7 years and we picked up amusement rides all the time. im from Pa and atlas is huge in Pa. im pretty sure there is a hub near shippensburg

Personally I would never use Yellow Freight (RCR) they have a saying...
Broken or Bent
Yellow it went!

I would advise not using them, especially if you want your freight on TIME. Get a quote from your local FedEx Freight company. That is the way to go!

To add to my previou message, you must ask Fedex Freight for the 45% new customer discount rate. Talk to a real person at FedEx Freight, don't use the computer, its better to call the local center, 800-354-9489 .

if you have any question you can send an email to me
forestoffright@yahoo.com I'd be happy to assist you on qetting you a quote or answer any questions.

Vampyress,
I am sorry but we have been using Yellow for 2 years now pretty much exclusively and have only had 2 problems in 2 years. Those are pretty good odds. when you purchase a compete PUP you also get a pretty good deal. Just be sure to insure your freight. If anything does happen they obviously can't replace what might get damaged. But you will get reimburse to be able to afford to replace it.

Something else to think about is Fedex Freight is also a great option when purchasing a full or half pup. IT is very reasonable. I think you would do fine either way.

Has anyone ever seen a loading dock at night at any freight collection center. Holy Crap, it is a wonder anything gets through a terminal without getting destroyed.

My husband works for FedEx freight for over 15yrs now.
I worked for them for 8yrs and then went to Yellow Freight..what a bad career move!

I have compared the difference in both trucking companies and realize that Fedex Freight is the way to go. Plus the financial trouble that yellow frieght is in, it's scary. It not unusual for a trucking company to go belly up and then all the frieght just sits on docks . I've worked the dock at the hubs and seen the nightmares both at yellow and fedex.

Whoever you want to carry your freight is fine. But just a reminder, i've seen the damaged freight from Yellow and it does not compare to Fedex Freight.
We also have a family member that is a sales rep for Yellow and from what he tells me and what i've seen , yellow does not like to pay there claims.

Whoever you want to chose is fine, i was just letting you know from my own opinion that i would never in a million years let yellow handle one piece of freight for me.
