Shipping a 6.4

This may be the wrong section so mods please feel free to move it to the correct spot. I have spent way too much time on this section of the forum over the last couple months while I searched for a 6.4. Ended up buying one in Dallas for much less than I can buy one here in Oregon for. Long story short, is there any good shipping companies that you guys recommend? I am open to having a member who does the hot shot thing haul it as well. I am located near Portland Oregon and the pickup is in Dallas Texas. A pm or respond to this post would be appreciated. Very excited about the new pickup and just want it in my driveway. It is a CCLB by the way in stock form.

Try Uship. They usually have decent rates. As far as anyone else, does the dealer know of any shipping companies? hauling a single truck can get expensive if there are no other cars along the way to drop off and spread the cost out. Why not fly down there and pick up and and drive it back and make a few day trip out of it?

I have looked into a few shipping companies and spoke with uship. Rates are reasonable and I may go that route. I also thought about flying down and driving it home, as I could fly down with a buddy and be home in 35 hours is what mapquest is telling me. In the end it is going to cost me the same amount. If it was summer I would be on a plane right now but with the route I would be traveling, road conditions have me a bit concerned. I really like the painted bumper on your pickup by the way. The one I bought is a stock Lariat in the same color combo you have.

Better wait... I just flew from Seattle to Augusta Georgia to pick up a ZR2 I bought a few weeks ago, had auto transport all lined up to go, missed the pick-up date so after 3 days I called and cancelled pickup and flew to Ga, you are better off flying to Dallas and driving it home, it is also a good way to learn a lot about your truck, damage/theft are common with transport companies, save yourself tons of stress GO GET IT, great road trip, no more then 3 days MAX.

I live in Dallas, weather will be great from now till next week! Hang out, eat a steak, watch a mavs game so you can get hyped about basketball since Sacramento kings are about to be sold to Seattle and you'll have a Bball team again. Buy me a steak too? Houston's is a great steak house!

I have been very hesitant on the shipping for the exact reasons you said. The pickup is in perfect condition and I am anal to say the least. How were the road conditions when you traveled?

That doesn't sound like a bad plan. The only problem is with a steak I have to have some cold ones and then the driving part of the adventure wouldn't be such a good idea. I'm from Portland so we have the Jail Blazers who can never seal the deal so the Pacific Northwest isn't exactly the powerhouse of the NBA. Portland needs a Major League team but instead we got a soccer team

I'd go down there and pick the truck up and drive it back. It gives you plenty of time to get used to your truck and you'll enjoy it!

Cold ones and steak mix great together! I guess your better off sticking to a drive through lol. Yeah that's something the mavs and blazers have in common lol, our team just isn't the same since we won that ring.. I was at the game lastnight vs OKC.. Great game, went into OT with OJ Mayo tieing it up with a 3 at the buzzard.. But Durant was just too much for us. Oh well..
