Thanks guys, all valid points.
Obviously I wouldn't attempt to pack Trevors' Skymaster F-14 in my little Mazda 3, or my SUV for that matter. I can't afford to damage something that costs more than my car!
Nice idea with the Volunteer forum, could work both ways for volunteers and people needing items moved.
You always take a chance something is going to get damaged when you ship it. I personally would rather utilize someone who is part of a forum and has a name I can hold accountable, rather than a nameless courier driver who doesn't give 2 ** about his cargo. Granted, insurance may or may not cover the items if, God forbid, something did happen. At least utilizing a fellow modeller, you can be sure (hopefully) he would treat it like the delicate item it is.

Re: Transportation services!!!

I concur. I do travel a fair bit with the military, and have come across great opportunities to shuttle an aircraft, especially ones partially built or whole, that just could not go by any other means.

Awesome idea!
Sub'd!

if I can help out in my travels, I will advise if able.

This does work, especially when fully transparent.

Re: Transportation services!!!

SUPER IDEA!! Keep the insurance thieves and lawyers out of this!

I do the 1 hour Coronation/Provost run daily guys... as if!

On a serious note though, I will be going to Saskatoon with a cargo trailer tomorrow.
