    I bought a 10,000 pound excavator and I need it shipped 4.5 hours across North Carolina (240mi).

    What is the best way to get multiple quotes from different shippers?

    Id say just find a carrier that'll do it. If, by shippers, you mean a broker(s)

    when you contact any broker or shipper, have all the specs at the ready..size, height, weight, width, pictures may be of some help as well.

    the more prepared you are, the better cooperation you will get.
