Recommend a jeep transport company?
 
Buying a jeep in Virginia because the price was right. I am in Nashville,TN.
Its 550 miles one way and I don't have the time to drive there and back and it would cost almost just as much to fly there one way and then drive the vehicle back.

Anyone recommend a transport company with reasonable rates? All my estimates are coming in at $600+

I have had awesome experience with Uship. I sent out my 78 powerwagon to south carolina to have it lifted (subframe, 6" body lift and 9 inch spring lift with 56" boggers) and sent back for 789? I think. Coming from upstate ny I thought it wasn't bad..

Buy a plane ticket and drive it back. The ride from Virgina to Tenn is beautiful! Plus you'll want to inspect the Jeep before you take delivery.

Car shipping is priced like any other commodity, the price per mile varies quite a bit and it's always a bidding war.

I have used Nationwide Auto Transport 6 or 7 times. They take a cut and bid your stuff to the carriers. Always great service. Always go the extra mile. The prices are fair. All their carrier subs that I've dealt with are insured/bonded and good people, otherwise they wouldn't last long in the business. I even had one find a guy to hold a car an extra 24hrs on the fly because we ran late on the meet up.

Edit, I noticed lots of companies use that name. The guys I worked with are at (800) 689-6498.

Where in VA is the jeep located? I'm headed to Nashville to visit a friend and I'd be willing to drive it for free and fly home.

Edit: never mind I literally just found out that I won't be going to Nashville any more.

Im totally nervous about not being able to inspect it. I work the next two weekends and dont have big enough gaps in my week to do it. Plus its going to be a surprise for my wife and I cant disappear that long. :rolleyes:
