    Default Empty pickup truck/ 12ft trailer headed to eastern Tenn from Orlando FL, ideas??

    Hello. I would love to be able to haul/deliver something (legal) for someone for a great price. I was thinking enough to cover my gas and time spent off my intended route, not the $2.00+/- loaded mile that one would pay for a professional service. I would rather drive my SUV than the pickup, but if someone has something heavy, it's a duallie. I do not know the exact dates, but very good chance it would be in what is left of July. Because I am not a professional service, as far as I know, I can not use the sites where you bid on loads. Does anyone have any ideas, or need anything hauled/ relocated?

    As, always, thank you, in advance.

    If there is a better 'section' to post this under, please let me know.

    They don't really have a section for transportation services, and craigslist is not really national. I did post something under misc. services (in Orlando), but no responses. I guess I could try to post something in the Tenn area.

    Post in the ride share section. That's where I've had the best luck.
    Kubota mx4700, Ford 8nx2, Timberking B-20 sawmill, Farmi 351 skidding winch, tiller, mower, bale chopper, etc. F250 5 speed I6. Stihl and shindaiwa saws.

    Every spring I drill 450 holes in maple trees, so I get to make about twelve cords of wood a year. Just me and the Gransfors Bruks splitting maul.

    My only fear would be if you had an accident of some sort across state lines (of no fault of your own).

    I don't know what the laws are for transportation, but if you're charging a fee for hauling and driving across state lines, I can't think it would be good if you had a "boo boo" and the cargo was asked about.

    That said, cash under the table, I'm guessing it would have to be the worst luck possible if there were a issue.

    Just because you can't do everything, doesn't mean that you have to chose to do nothing.

    Will your insurance pay for their thing if it gets damaged? I wouldn't haul anything unless it was for a friend.
