I need help getting trailer fenders from A to B.

I found a pair of fenders for my 197 project and need help getting them from Jacksonville Florida to Nashville Tennessee or as close as possible. I'll work out payment, all I need is pick up and delivery. Please reply here or through the TT direct message. Thanks

$500 for the pair and a spare tire/wheel? I've been talking him to just before I bought the boat and he's been holding them for me.

Try Greyhound bus shipping. I've shipped a couple large items through them and it was very reasonable.

I've got one cracked fender and was quoted $550 or so for a replacement from the dealer a couple years ago. So $500 sounds like a deal to me for 2 + a spare provided they are in acceptable condition. Always try to negotiate a bit but you're probably in a reasonable ballpark.

Thank you, 3event, they're supposedly in excellent condition.

The seller said it would be $200 to ship fenders and $35 wheel/tire. I'd rather spend that on something else.

I would try to find out the names of some common carriers that carry boats and trailers out of KY/TN and into FL. When I bought my MC in Florida the dealer said there are so many trucks that bring boats and trailers down to FL, he could get my MC shipped up to TN/KY for 1/3 the cost of a typical transport. You may find a carrier that is coming back to someplace in TN you could get these to ride along for a minimal charge (or a case of beer).

Although $235 is pretty cheap for the size of the fenders.

This is a good idea but I was hoping someone here could help me out. If not I'll just make the drive myself and hit the beach for a long weekend. I hate dropping $235+ on shipping.

I'd pay the shipping. I just drove to Jacksonville a month ago. It's a long drive. I think it cost me $500.00+ in gas for my Denali.
