    Default Cost of Shipping?

    I was wondering how much people have paid for commercial shipping. I haven't decided anything yet, but my husband wants to know how much before we decide so I haven't called any companies. It would be from central NC to north east MS (it is about a 10-11 hour drive in a car). How much? Who have people used? Thanks in advance!

    There are so many differing factors involved you will get a huge range of quotes. I am shipping a horse roughly 1800 miles and got quotes from $700 to $4500.....

    Same here, when I shipped from CO to WA a few years ago it went from $600 to far more than I paid for the horse. LOL

    I just shipped mine 2400 miles from Canada to the US. Most quotes were around $3k, but the shipper I picked shipped for under $2k, with a box stall and nice layovers during the day when it was hot. Took a week to get there, and arrived in excellent shape.
