  • hauling
  • I recently purchased a 1928 Model A Ford Phaeton (touring) from a gentleman in Yukon, Oklahoma, Near Oklahoma City, OK. I need it delivered to Brooklyn, CT 06234. Delivery to my door not necessary, partial haul east and I'll meet them somewhere west of my location.
    Anyone have a recommendation for a closed trailer hauler?
    Regards, Al Sandholm aka AL CT

  • If you go to YTMag and look on the left side of the home page you'll see a link for "hauling schedule".
    You can run a free ad or search by state for other ads.
    I have used it twice. Once to get a plow hauled to the Twin Cities from Nebraska and once I was heading south to TX to pick up a tractor I bought. I hauled a big Detroit diesel to St. Joseph, MO on my way down for $140.
    Lots of ads similar to those there where a guy is going one way empty and just wants some gas money.
    There are some professional haulers there too who are just wanting to fill a load.
    It helps if you're not in a big hurry. No guarantee you'll find a hauler but it is worth checking out.

  • As Ultradog in MN has used haulers on the YT site, I too have used a couple of them several times. If you select one of those fellas, you'll have to set up the delivery details directly with that hauler. Two important things to remember when using an independent hauler:

    1. NEVER EVER pay any fees up front regardless of how small such a fee is asked for as trustworthy haulers will collect their fees when the item is delivered.

    2. You personally will have to provide the means to unload the vehicle if it isn't shipped on a dove-tail or lowboy type trailer - in short, if the vehicle you've bought is delivered on a typical 18 wheeler flat bed, a dock height ramp or surface will be required to unload it, but in most cases the driver will let you know that ahead of time.
