    Need someone in Florida( west palm area) with a truck/trailer

    Hey everyone.

    In a previous thread I posted about some molds I purchased. Well my transportation people fell thru and I need to get them by Saturday 8/4 . I was going to pay the guy $200 to pick it up in West palm and deliver them to Orlando(winter park) . Anyone around there with a truck and trailer that wants to make $200

    They should fit on a 12x6 trailer.

    It would be hard to buy gas for that trip in my truck. You are only a few hours away. Why don't you just go and get a $19 dollar per day U-haul and drive down yourself.

    You might be able to do it for under $300.

    I looked. At 89 cents a mile (plus rental) its almost 400 . The guy that was going to do it lives in West Palm and was willing to do it for 200. What a pain this has become..lol

    I have the truck and trailer but I think it would cost a bundle to do it for you. Want to buy a truck for the next time.

    Where are you located in Winter Park? I am going to be over there on the 9th on Metric Drive at one of my accounts.

    Well I am in Orlando In Near the Airport. My storage/workshop is on Forsyth Road . I have a 87 blazer (v6) that might pull a trailer, has a hitch just no hookups for lights im not sure how easy it will pull a trailer. Not to mention its pushing 300k miles.

    You can make it! It's a Chevy. With those miles just drive it gently, use the Turnpike and it will be fine.

    I rented a car hauler from Pensky for $29 a day. That might be the way to go. I have another customer on Forsyth named Wheeled Coach. They make Busses and Ambulances>

    Uhaul will not rent me just the trailer. They say my blazer does not meet the minimum weight for a 6x12

    Been there :-\ U Haul is a real pain to deal with. Try finding a smaller, local rental company. They won't have as many restrictions and might even be cheaper. That's the case here anyway. A local company let me pull a full car trailer with my V6 Camaro. If that doesn't work, try a Penske. it will still cost you more than you want to pay, but I find them to be cheaper than UHaul. best wishes.

    Well they are on the way up. I found a guy in orlando to drive down to west palm, pick them up, and deliver for $225 . Also I am going to purchase the chassis and additional body. IT was an offer I could not refuse.

    LOOK OUT WORLD. Another strange looking kitcar will be on the road.
