I shipped my big yagis and several 20' masts on the same van that moved the
rest of the household stuff. These vans have a 'belly pack' and the guys
just slid the aluminum in there and that was all there was to extra

I need to move a lot of tower and antennas (many 24 foot pieces )
2000 miles west.  I have some limited experience doing this with

much smaller amounts of material.  I looked into a lot of options,

but finally went with commercial trucking companies and paid

big bucks.


I'd like to hear from others with experience doing this.  I know

there are web sites where you can advertise loads, but much of

the terminology is foreign to me, and I didn't have much luck
with them in the past.


I am talking about shipping about 450 feet of tower (most hand
load-able) and perhaps 1500-2000 lbs of aluminum, with many

other pieces of assorted hardware.


I will try to summarize answers back here.  Thanks.
