    That is an understatement. I used to work for Trailer Transit, they would be happy to accommodate you. IF both are genuinely roadworthy, and you are willing to be patient, give them a 7 day window to pick it up, and allow weekend delivery, expect to pay about $2 per loaded mile.
    Transit doesn't do it, but there are brokers that will do a "load out". Allow the driver to load the trailer with a paying load, and only charge like $300 to move it. Driver makes his money from the paying load.

    Take a power only load yourself to get them out of the auction lots. Place one in nearby storage, bring other home with a paying load. Take another power only back east and get the second one from storage, take paying load back home with that one.


    I would not trust the new reefer on a cold load the first time.

    It is 14 something if I remember correctly.
    I knew my route and had a permit.

    Sure looks like the whole nose is bent upwards at the rear strap.

    My neighbor had a one ton flatbed pickup. He laid a pickup wheel on the
    pickup bed........put the semi trailer fifth wheel pin in the
    center of the pickup wheel......backed off the brakes and down the road he went.
