We've bought a carriage in North Carolina and need to get it to Memphis, TN. Have you used commercial shippers that you have liked? We just can't get off work to go get it ourselves. Thanks for suggestions.
You can also try U-Ship, which is kind of like eBay for goods transport -- you post your requirement and take bids on moving it. I've had very good luck with it and have met some cool people!
A caution about u-ship, it's getting more common for people's things to be picked up and never delivered, IOWs, sold off somewhere else.
I recently used, at the recommendation of a carriage seller, Chris Gubala to ship my cart from IN to CA. I had it shipped previously by someone else. Fortunately it was a new cart, because it was so badly damaged in transport that the maker had the shipper bring it straight back and made a whole new cart.
My new cart shipped via Chris and his partner and arrived in CA swaddled in what must have been 50 shipping blankets, and was as perfect and blemish free as the day it rolled out of the paint booth.
