I was moving a telescoping radio tower that is 23 feet long (nested), 23 inches on a side (triangular) and weighs 750 pounds. I needed it moved from one residential location to another about 40 miles away. I received a lot of responses from people who were curious and interested in the business, but the provider I chose stood out - he responded confidently, had done this before and his price was reasonable. Bingo! I had a way to move it and get it to my house within 48 hours of posting my need at a price a fraction of what one of the "big guys" wanted to charge. I needed several weeks to get it done - I had shopped WAY early for transportation, thinking this would be difficult - the service provider was great, kept in touch, but wasn't annoying. When the day arrived, he arrived early and had the tower loaded by the time we we supposed to meet! He had exactly the right equipment and obviously knew what he was doing. The next time I want something weird moved - even a 750 pound radio tower - uship is the first place I'll look!
