From Fort Smith Craigslist: Don't know anything about them. Just a way to get ideas.

They say all the right things. No pay until delivered and insurance. Don't get hung up on if they don't get there on time. Lots of variables, picking up other vehicles and weather and breakdowns.

I know a guy who hauls reasonably but he is located here on the East Coast. He picked up a Rolling Chassis here once and is about to haul a non-running Impala to Wisconsin.

2000?! Oh my! I'm being told 1k should do it, my bid is currently in at 1250 but no takers. I can't afford much more than 1400 total and I've got 100 in towing already... a GOFUNDME might be in order ! ;-)

Keep looking. You should be able to find someone to haul it for $1000 or less. You just need to find the right person. A back haul would be ideal.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Bilt, I am guessing it is time of year (weather) combined with holidays as it being inoperable. That's my rationale at least until i hear otherwise ;-)

The guy I mentioned above is a small time independent. They seem to be the ones that can usually keep the prices down. I would just keep researching and checking till you found the right one. I had to bring two in through the years and had good luck with both. Both had very good service for very reasonable prices. I did spend a lot of time on the telephone though, lol. If you get a "no", always ask for a recommendation. That's how I found my last hauler.

Stuck due to weather. Teusday night mozt likley will show.

Felt bad for hauler too, delay due to weather was because he had 3 other pick up sites and they all last-minute-cancelled leaving him with delays causing run in with weather. So, ...good that i am a patient man.
