I think the choice of words will make a BIG financial difference here. I would recommend you not look for a towing company rather a transport company. Be sure to have the bearings checked/repacked before the trip. Welcome to the 'Stream' life... I worked with a fella that would tow trailers commercially with his Dodge Pick-up. That is the kind of guy you are looking for. Good Luck, see you on the road!

By the way, I will try and contact the guy who was in the transport business and see if he can recommend anyone.

Well my contact is out of the business but he recommended you visit www.uship.com there you can post what you need done and people will submit bids. Just be sure mover is licensed and insured. And don't forget to have the bearings greased if not re packed.

I have used Uship 3 times with great results. Once for an atv and twice for boats on trailers. I was very lucky last time as the guy who towed was a trailer mechanic and had to make axle repairs on the trip from FL to VT.

We just recently used Uship to get our 31' Excella to Austin and had a great experience!
The drivers name was Scott Simpson and his company is called Power Sport Transport.

Good luck!
