I'm trying to get a 3/4 ton machine moved half way across the country for less than what I'm paying for the machine. Are machinery movers different than truck lines? The quotes I get from truck lines cite commodity classes and crating and palletizing and run into ridiculous sums. However, when I deal with a machine (sales) company, the prices are more reasonable. I realize the machine companies may get a better rate due to volume, but it seems like way too much variation in price. Any recomendations from CA to MO? I have to make arrangements myself: no help on other end.
