The next time I need a car transported, I'm going to be calling on you to book my waybill for me, hahaha
Every shipper asked me: "is it a kit car?" and "does it have an engine?" - They all wanted to jack the transport rate up another 500-600 bucks if the car was a non-running roller.
My best quote to get a bare fiberglass Mr Bruce body from Pittsburgh to Phoenix was $1200
Fair points about the aluminum body...
Is it worth it to pay the extra shipping on an ERA kit, versus a Hurricane or a Unique? To an ERA owner, I guess it could be... but not to me...
to each, his own. There really are no right or wrong answers to any of this - Everybody makes their final decision based on the criteria that are most important to them...
I wouldn't need ERA's detailed assembly bible to put one of these cars together, so the extra shipping expense from CT would influence my personal decision more heavily than the value of the assembly manual.
I've used this broker at least 3 times in the past few years. I haven't had a problem yet and they book enclosed or open. I've done both.

I know my engine-less Kirkham was less than a $1,000 from UT to CA, but that was back in 2007-2008. That company went out of business, but was an advertiser here.
