Anyone here a trucker?

Recently bought a JK from Dixie Motors in Nashville, TN and they will pay for the shipping but it's in central dispatch down there and I'm up here in ND. The simple thing would be to fly down and get it, but my schedule doesn't allow it. Just wondering if anyone is from down that way and heading anywhere near ND in the next bit that could pick it up if they have the means or if your from up here and your hauls take you down to the Nashville area. Thought I'd take a wild stab in the dark on this one. I'm being patient waiting for it, but that gets tougher as the days go by.
Thanks for any and all responses.

Thanks for the heads up. I have sent an email to start the talks, it's greatly appreciated.

Also, in case this doesn't work, any and all replies are appreciated!

I appreciate the offer but don't know if I can take on the liability of that. I am looking to see if I would have time in the somewhat near future to also fly down myself and drive it back. Thank you though.

Also, would be able to meet anyone that could deliver the jeep as far away as Sioux Falls, SD or Minneapolis, MN. Would just need enough notice ahead of time. Thanks

One of our trucks is leaving out Fri bound for ND and I believe he has enough room. He'd probably be up there Tue or Wed, I'm not exactly sure. I expect the vehicle would need to be available for a Sat load. The trailer's not a car hauler though, it's a 52' dropdeck, meaning that you'd be in for about 1/3 of his deck for those miles. He does have ramps so loading/unloading wouldn't be an issue-- he could drop just about anywhere. If interested PM me back and I'll shoot you contact details.
