    Two palettes against front wall. First car in. Four palettes next car in and so on. If you drive nice they don't move. Also you get a seal at the border in Beaver Creek that is the last chance you get to look at them before coming back in to the US.

    You basically get paid the same than the barge charges going South. It's a take it or leave it deal. I made almost $40,000.00 in 2017 bringing cars down from Alaska. never had a claim either. I had clients that buy wrecked cars at the auction and we would haul those back as well. Those you didn't have to worry so much about.
    The biggest thing I brought back was an F550 dually without a bed.

    How bad is the cassiar for going back to Seattle? And how much miles you do if going back via 97? Alex told me to use the cassiar, but based on what I have heard from some guys, i am doubting to use it. He also told me something about avoiding the scale after the border in Sumas.

    @Troady my last reply I should have said..made it safe to your destination, an back to the city. ;) I'm counting on you making it safely back now that I said you did. Haha.

    Good luck on the journey back. You got to make a trip a lot of folks talk, dream about making. An managed to make some money. Always a good thing.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - I'm still waiting on someone to deliver to Peru or somewhere. That thread would require a ton of popcorn before it even got across the border.

    Yep if you got a way to strap them to the floor it would be no different than on a flat bed.

    Now that was a adventure. I've been all across America. Been to spots lots of people didn't even no exist. It have NEVER taken the trip the op did. I realize he didn' do it strictly for profit. But I am wondering what it wound up costing them to do. Just getting the truck ready in the beginning and fixing the a.c. in Alaska way a chunk.
