Where abouts in western Nebraska?
I've driven non stop many times from here,(Chicago area),to Blair Nebraska,(east Nebraska),in just under 8 hours.Nearly a straight shot.
With this nice calm weather,open trailer would be perfect before the snow flies.

be wary of those guys,,,they are just dispatchers trying to coordinate shipping,,they wont tell you all the gory details like how many times your car will be transferred etc,,,,pay the money go with reliable or a brand name....


I had 2 vehicles moved by my company once,,the delivery guy was fresh off the boat from Africa,, couldnt speak english,,,he drove my Escalade and Corvette off the ramp and screwed up my spoiler,,,,NEVER again

Hire a broker and you might get this outfit. Driver spoke very little English, Eastern Europeon or Russian? and hadn't showered in a month, phew! The rig was loaded with high end cars. Took three weeks with a couple no-shows to be picked from my cousin in Pasadena. For the next six weeks no one could give a clue where it was until it showed up in Iowa on an hours notice.

I had one very, very similar to that. They arrived at dark o'clock and demanded an "unloading fee" or the car would not come off the trailer. When I pointed out they were trying to extort $$$ from me and with cell phone in hand, I asked if they knew if -911- was for the police, they quickly changed their tune. Amazingly, their comprehension of English became instantly clear....

Now I use either Reliable or Passport.

I've used the cheap guys and their definition of "enclosed" is very loose. I use Reliable now. Sometimes for short trips I use Incognito.
