Default glider transport needed

Looking for a quality, reliable individual or company to deliver a glider in a single axle Cobra trailer from Spokane, WA to Jacksonville, Fl.I only have Uship as a possibility. Any referrals would be greatly appreciated.

Alternative suggestion: Does it have to be Jacksonville? How about starting from Tacoma? Is it heading for Europe?

OK. Sorry for the poorly-centred assumption. I'm in the UK and once drove a friend's trailer from Uvalde to Jacksonville

I have had good success with U-ship, a couple of nice college guys drove my Cobra from California to Georgia for $2000 bucks. They took the northern route and spent some time in a couple of national parks, took something like 10 days, as I remember.

Be patience.....uship has a satisfaction rating system....I too was very satified. Some will ask 'what is your budget.'
Just keep it simple until you get a good rated bid. I will use them again.

$2000 to move a glider 2700 miles. Unless you find a glider pilot who is already going that way or someone who just wants to do a corner to corner drive of the US for fun and help subsidize the trip, you are definitely limited to UShip and/or hot shot transport. They are already roaming all over the country and can more easily pick up one way loads.

Back when I was doing this sort of thing my standard charge was $1/mile round trip from my house. That would be about $5700 for this trip. It's about an 8 day round trip.

I have a friend who just started doing the hot shot thing. Shoot me an email at and I'll put you in touch.

Hi Tony - thank you for the info. I've gotten all my quotes thru Uship that are far from the $1 / mile suggested.
