Shipping a vehicle

Looking for some wisdom about shipping an Excursion. Just bought one and need to have it shipped and from what I've leaned so far... do not use a broker. I started out by using a web site and getting quotes... OMG... they're like street peddlers in a third world country.

Here's what I'm shippinguotes as high as 1-excursion-3.jpg and because of the length (19') small shippers won't take it. Coming from Tennessee and going to Florida... 830 miles.

Any advice or recommendations?

To fly and drive will $550+, plus time off. Quotes for shipping, 350 to 1100.

If you have the time seems that is right in the middle price range. What about car rental there and drive the Excursion back. Looking at the picture I guess it has dual exhaust? Looks pretty good. Maybe post in Excursion threads as well.

Honestly it would be better to drive up and back, but if you can't swing the time find someone reputable, I got the run around for 3 months by someone who claimed to be a shipper and in fact turned out to be a broker after I asked first the. Paid then they said they were a broker and asked for more money
