I would suggest that you find a friend that has a boat trailer that you
could use to transport the tower for that distance. You could get about
four guys to load it onto the trailer and strap it in place to the 250 miles
need to transfer to your location. Hope this will give you another idea as
to how to move the tower.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Clever Solution for moving a tower
Ok guys, looking for some clever solutions. I just bought a tower, MA-550
with raising fixture and rotor base, sort of used. It's in Portland, I'm in
Seattle (250 miles away). It was an opportunity I just couldnt pass up. I
now need to go pick it up. It's too heavy for a couple of guys to get it.
There arent any rental co's that I can find such that I can rent a trailer
so perhaps a tow could put it onto. It's 435 lbs, 22 feet long.
Suggestions on how to get it up here?
