Landstar Trucking, dispatched out of Maine. That's who I get my trucking done by. Actually there is a trucker that drives under Landstar who lives near by. I usually use him. I provide my own nets. He sets the trailer in the loading yard and when I have it loaded and netted and strapped he shows up to haul it south.
Last spring he hauled my bees north for me and spent the day w/ me spreading them out in the orchards. I love having a trucker who isn't afraid of getting out there when the bees are flying. I have worked w/ a couple of different truckers who won't get out of the truck until it's time to check the straps. That's okay too, I guess. But when you are otherwise by yourself it's nice to have another set of eyes and hands helping.
I don't know the price yet. Quality and availablity and accomadation are worth the extra cost, if there is any.
