Transporting a C30 from OK to MA

Anyone have any recommendations on a transport company? Have to move a '79 C30 service truck from Ponca City, OK to Boylston, MA.

My usual transport guy seems like he won't be able to get down that way for a bit and I don't want to hold the seller up... hate to pass up on the truck though since it's outfitted with some nice equipment.

I've used Uship with great results.

I used them when I brought my '61 GMC 5000 up from NC, worked great. Talking to the transport guy who moved it after, he said Uship takes a little over half of what I paid. Cost was $1200, that's why I like to deal direct now.

If the truck is in driving condition, you could get a bit creative.

Ask the high-school shop teacher for a boy who's very mechanically inclined and would rather do anything other than schoolwork. Fly him down there, and have him drive the truck home. He'd remember that trip for a lifetime!
