Larry,

I can't help you.

I am available now out of Las Vegas, NV.

You might ask the Seller if he has an enclosed trailer or knows someone who has one that can help out.

Your best bet is to hire someone where you are at or where the Model T is located at to do a turnaround trip.

That is a regional trip - the unloaded miles needed to be driven will likely be equal or greater than the loaded miles.

A 350 mile trip is actually a 700 mile trip.

Horseless Carriage has a yard in Ft. Lee, NJ.

I pass it every time I cross the GW Bridge.

You might call them.


Freighter Jim

When I needed to have my '24 shipped, I searched Craigslist and made some phone calls. A bit of a crap shoot, but it worked out well for me. :-)

I had my T shipped with Uship- list your car and the route, and shippers will bid on your transport. You can specify an enclosed trailer as well if you would like. Carefully read the reviews for each shipper, and I would advise not using a shipping service but instead contracting directly with the driver. I've had two cars transported with uship for far cheaper than the cost of a trailer rental, gasoline, and my time. If you can be there for pickup make sure you read up on how to trailer a T, so the guy doesn't cinch down on your wood spokes for example.

I've shipped a number of cars around the country for a friend. All newer cars, but the system will no doubt work for your T. It's a website called U-ship

https://www.uship.com.

You post your shipment, what it is, with the when / where for pick up and delivery. It also allows for flexibility.

You can also specify a certain $ amount of insurance carried, enclosed only, etc.

Then, shippers monitoring U-Ship will bid on the shipment. You get to choose the bid that works for you. It's very transparent. The bid they provide includes a fee that THEY pay to U-Ship. When I've used it, the quality of the trailers has been very good, the shippers have all been very professional and nice.

Ultimately you have the option to choose which one feels best for you. And, this is a site which helps shippers fill un-filled space on their existing movements. This will allow the right shipper with free space to provide a very attractive bid.

Just a thought.
