Good chance its wide also. My company doesn't do back hauls but we do love a challenge- that pays! Sounds like you want an Eastern based company to haul it. An I/O or outboards hanging out and a non-folding tongue on the trailer and you would need 35'. At 8 cents a foot/mile-well, it would add up LOL!
No, not at all. I was simply trying to figure out in my head what it should be for a reasonable rate. I figured somewhere around $8000 or so.
Just thought someone here may have known someone from there who could have used the load. Was not looking around for cut rates, or to grind anyone. Funny how people read what they want into other peoples posts.
Well OK, but when one uses the phrase "back haul" it automatically triggers a negative response and for good reason. Since deregulation, one person's front haul has become another's back haul to the point where it now always means something really cheap.
Possibly you were not aware of that.
Offering a back haul to Atlantic Canada from BC assumes that freight coming into BC pays well enough. The reality is that freight into Alberta pays as much as into BC so there is little incentive to go there since it is 6-700 miles further.
