Default Transport recommendations

Hi
I'm new to the group. My Father passed last month (he was 91 and really missing Mom so it was a good thing) and I have inherited a 31 /Model A coupe which has was restored about 15 years ago, and has been sitting under a cover in his garage for the past 5 years.
The first challenge will be getting it from Central Utah to Northwest Arkansas where I live. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The move will be in April or May.
Once I get eyes on it, I'm sure there will be questions about fluids, belts, hoses, and such. Finally I will probably need to pull the head to see if he did the valve seats when it was restored several years ago.
Thanks in advance.

Why not just rent a UHAUL vehicle transporter (trailer) and tow it to your home?

I used Amerifreight, a broker out of Florida to transport my 30 pickup from Ohio to Oregon. I was very happy with them. I dealt with a Richard Jernigan.

I've used Reliable Carriers several times although they are probably the most expensive.
Last time delivering my'33, I used Montway. Also great results and less expensive.
Note: Montway sub-brokers, (which was not a problem), meaning the truck that hauls the car might be a different company.
I'd use them again.

Sorry about the loss of your dad as well, and welcome to the world of Model A Fords. Your coupe will find it's way back to Arkansas in due time.

I recommend Bill Squires of Bill's Auto Works. He provided excellent service for me in a cross-country transport. Not cheap, but good. See post #4 above.

TRULY VINTAGE, he's a member here and does post from time to time. He transported a vette for me (my brother actually) from CT to FL, very trustworthy. I (we) would use him again.

When I moved my coupe from NJ home to PA I used a Penske truck to pull a Penske car trailer. Their equipment is top-notch and fairly priced. They are available both round-trip and one-way.

Hi Paul,

If the OP is looking for an actual business and not just some guy pulling a trailer that has no insurance ...

I have been in business since 2006 - I wrote the code for my website that I built.

I have been here on FordBarn since 2010.

Before Miss Shelly sold it to Ryan - I posted a box ad at the top of
both ChevyBarn and FordBarn.

Today I dropped off this 1951 Ford Victoria in North Phoenix, AZ
that I picked up at The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum
in Auburn, IN last week.

This is the second time I have transported this particular car.
