Default vehicle transport needed- NC to GA

I know this is a long shot, but I just sold our '35 Chevrolet and the buyer needs it transported from Charlotte NC to Cornelia GA - about 190 miles, sometime in the next week or so.
anyone in the area have a good truck & trailer and want to make a little extra cash?

phone me at (828) 713-3766

Jim at Truly Vintage- are you in the eastern US now? what is your availability?

That is a " turnaround trip ".

Your Buyer is going to have to hire someone at the pick up or drop off location
and pay for a round trip.

Buyer should just drive it,190 miles is just a walk in the park.AAA has a plan for up to 200 miles towing,just an idea.

AAA is not intended as a transport service for when you buy a car.

It is emergency roadside assistance.

When folks lie and abuse the service - it ruins
it for other members.

He is 80 years old and evidently does not wish to drive it home.
Came to my house and bought the car driving a new GMC 2500 pickup.
I told him that it would pull a U-Haul car transport easily, he just needs to get a driver to come with him if he's not comfortable towing .....

I drove the Chevrolet 115 miles from the mountains when we moved here; I'm buying another car and plan to drive it home from Lexington KY (400 miles).

Enjoyed meeting and chatting with Jim.
Very impressed with his equipment and procedures.
Consider Truly Vintage if you need a car transported......

Thank You Paul 👋

Boy that was along time ago that I hauled that Corvette 🧐

That was my second custom built enclosed car
hauler trailer - I remember the spread axle design.

You have always been kind enough to post an encouraging word.

Lightbulb New Owner

The new owner was happy with the car.

I followed him a few miles to a car show I had passed
just to make sure the Chevy ran ok - which it did.

I am on my way now to
The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum in Auburn, Indiana
with a beautiful original 1934 Ford Roadster.

From Indiana I have an empty trailer to
Oregon & Washington if anyone need a vehicle hauled.

You truly got a lot of free advertising out of this one. You should have paid them to haul the car !
