I bought a glider with trailer in Dayton OH and used uShip to find haulers to Turner Valley AB. My initial ask for a cross-border haul got high bids from only two haulers; so I also tendered for delivery to Shelby MT which attracted several interested bidders and I was able to obtain a price comparable to other glider with trailer shipments once I reminded haulers of bids for similar shipments. Gas was cheaper then and I paid a bit more per km. than shipments to/from less out of the way places where the hauler can more easily connect with something going back. You need to research what comparable shipments go for and also hauler feedback. Somebody offered to underbid Bob by $50, but he has next to no feedback record. Bob's feedback was very good and the assurance was well worth the extra $50.
