We have shipped from Alabama to Utah and back again with Bob Hubbard, and each time it was about $1500-1700. Price probably varies a bit depending on their route: Alabama was kind of out of the way, so you might actually get a better price going to Virginia.

My sister in law did exactly this haul about 6 years ago. I believe she said it was $1500-$1800 at that time. Don't remember which company she used, but on of the better known...with air ride. She was very pleased.
