Pony Express Central (Shipping Discussion)

Recommended Posts

Anyone able to help me get mcp's RF-63's from Syracuse, NY to the east coast of Iowa?  I've got a space cleared for these bad boys and the money in hand...I just need a team to help me make it work. (That money in hand includes some for anyone willing to help.)

Another successful Klipsch Pony Express. 

 

A big shout out thanks to @opusk2k9 for helping me get a pair of speakers from Wisconsin. He's been holding them since mid August of 2016 when they were dropped off to him from the seller from Wisconsin. They are here in central KY now. Thanks again.

Glad to hear success does happen...

I forgot to let it be known that I will be going from here to Atlanta and back tomorrow (Saturday Dec. 2) and will have some room on my trailer.

Anyone travelling through Little Rock headed to Washington DC?  I have a friend that I need to ship the WE 753C speaker cabinets to.  Just checking in?

Maybe a little far in advance, but figured I'd post anyway. The last week of April I'll be traveling from Greenville, SC to Louisville, KY and back. Got a F150 with a bed cap so I can easily fit 2 La Scalas and possibly more depending on what's being moved. 

 

Also, I do have room in my house to store some speakers if you can't get them right away.

Long shot but some time near the end of the week Jan 7-13 I'll be traveling from the Detroit area through most of OH/PA turnpike into Maryland. I'm willing to transport just about anything. (Full size Yukon Denali), but not much time to spare. You will have to drop/get the item to me along the way. Toledo, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Harrisburg, Baltimore all possible.

I just discovered a service called Roadie.com.  It is an app for iPhone and Android.  It hooks you up with people for long distance shipping.  I am trying to get 2 CF-4 adn 2 CF-3 from Midland South Dakota to Seattle.  So I chose the hatchback/SUV size.  It quoted me $283.  FedEx Ground is $500.  For fits in the front seat of a car, it is $101.  Fits in the back seat is $272.  Fits in a pickup is $312.   That is 1300 miles. 

 

Prices for hatchback/SUV to Seattle

 

San Francisco  $200

Denver $300

Chicago  $451

Dallas $459

 

So I am going to guess that the $200 range is about 800 miles.  For some deals, that would be worth it.  Probably other services out there.

Is anyone going from St Louis to Wisconsin, or partway? I bought a KPT-456 pair in St Louis and looking to shorten the road trip if possible.

I have been looking into those Uber style delivery services, and they are getting some attention. A few others I found

it looks like I may be going - reluctantly, unless I am allowed, or am successful at getting out of this trip - from Jackson MS to Hot Springs AR next week.

 

IDK if that helps anyone but thought I'd post & offer.  will have some room in the Expedition for use.

 

and of course, a return trip too - if that helps for anyone.

This is all tentative at the moment, but I might, and that is a big might, be going from Baltimore, MD down I-95 to Orlando, FL and I could pick up pretty much whatever you're thinking of.

 

The only detail is that I would not feel comfortable loading or unloading any extremely expensive items, but I could help if needed.

 

I guess on rare occasion things work out, so maybe this would be one of them.

I'm still in need, if anyone is able and willing.
