    A non runner is gonna cost extra since it needs a winch and can’t be moved off to unload the car in front of it .

    friend of mine got a quote of $600 to move a non runner from Jacksonville to Atlanta .
    I told him he better take that deal.

    Dealing with the car hauler companies is gonna be fun.
    It’s all slimy brokers and smarmy drivers from communist Eastern European Russian soviet states .

    there are no car haulers with actual terminals and offices and employees ,
    All the ads are just dirtbag brokers acting like they have fleets of trucks etc

    just ask them where is their terminal so you can pick up or deliver the car to them.
    Then they will have to tell you they don’t have any terminal or any office , it’s just some skeezy guy with a computer .
    And none of them will give you a pick up or delivery date , and last time I dealt with them a few years ago the broker wanted a $290 deposit , said I had to pay the driver the remainder in cash etc etc

    I found a friend of a friend to haul it from AZ to Georgia , for a good price .

    Yes, but in the POV market, the Eastern Bloc types are overly prevalent.
