1965 Airstream Charleston SC to Watertown MA

I'm likely to purchase a 1965 Tradewind in Charleston SC this Thursday, January 8 and need to bring it up to Watertown, MA (just west of Boston).
Does anyone know of a reliable experienced Airstream tower in the Charleston area? I'll need someone who is very good at backing up and maneuvering to get it into my backyard - there's enough room, but finesse is important to avoid damage to my landlady's property. Please include their phone numbers and/or e-mails. Thanks!

I don't tow for others, but I will be in Charleston on the 13th and 14th if I can offer some assistance.

Wade Transport...east coast

Wade Transport can handle your needs....
Wade Transport......here in Florida....I trust them.... i just used this tranport company to move a 1989 30 foot from New Jersey to Orlando
Wade Transport....770-519-7070 .....(Rocky and Jodi Wade)

a large 3500 series dually, exceptional service and communications from start to end....phone calls....emails....pictures before and after....they greased bearings...greased axels...went to the tire store and put new tires on....all this extra and no increase in cost....NJ to FL 1060 miles cost 975.00...total...plus tires of course....this couple currently has over 70 feedbacks from satisfied customers....all positive....this may save you money and add a piece of mind to your moves...read their feedbacks...they move trailers all the time....several airstreams in feedbacks as well...

(i have no connections with this couple....only that i am extremly happy with the service they provided to me in moving my airstream over 1000 miles...and i hope that they may be able to help others out as they have me....)

i found this couple on USHIP.com....this sites finds haulers for everything from dogs to yachts...currently several airstreams moves are listed...




here is someone else from your side of the pond that used Wade Transport as well

++++++++++++++++

Rocky Wade Highly recommended for AS transport !

You were right !

Rocky was avalible, reasonable priced and flexible !
The ship it should be on was overbooked, the AS could only be in the port for 7 days before departure, and he arranged the transport 7 days before the new date, and was overall was very helpfull.
If I ever need something towed again, i will surely call him first.

I will post pictures when my new 1986 Excella arrives in Europe.
Thank you all for your advice !

Axel & Annieta

Dear Axel and Annieta,
Thanks very much - I'll look for Rocky's bid and/or contact directly.

Robert77 in the forums offers transport. If the above transporter can't get to you, you can try Robert.

I just called Wade and left a message. If we use them, I'll let you know how it goes.

Very good response indeed but, You might what call Wade back. The Airstream in question was to be moved January 8. That Land Yacht has sailed.

It's taken some time, but we're getting close to scheduling Mr. Wade to pick up the Overlander. I'll post here after the transport is complete with all of the details and, I hope, a glowing report.

Transport successful. Mr. Wade's driver picked up the Overlander in SC and hauled it to Ohio. We received an email from Mr. Wade telling us, "The back end fell off but the driver strapped it up." While the email gave me a jolt, I figured (correctly) that the person who had worked on the trailer had done a lousy job tacking the belly pan back on and it had let go. The belly pan has to be replaced anyway, so it's no great loss. The pan dropping also had nothing to do with Wade Transport. Overall, the price was fair and the service was excellent. I would recommend using him.
