    Shipping a non-runner across the country

    Not quite resto-related, but sort-of.

    I'm still hunting for a project, and a lot of the ones I'm considering are several thousand Kms away (I'm in Canada, but I imagine this issue is universal).

    All of the auto transport companies I've talked to would be glad to help me if I have a running car with functioning brakes, which doesn't apply to any of the hard-luck case JNCs I've been looking at.

    Short of flying to where they are and getting it loaded into a container or trailering it back myself, does anyone have any tips or recommendations on how to go about this?

    Thanks!

    To answer this question for future posterity, it sounds like a few transports specialize in non-runners while most won't touch them, and getting something from New Brunswick to Vancouver B.C. will clock in at $2100 to $2800. That's a lot of parts car.

    I was having this issue myself with a pair of free (!) Datsun B210s...I posted on uship.com but even after several bids it ended up being too expensive at that time to justify the cost. This was a couple years ago and I was in the same spot money-wise that I am now. :roll:
