Best way to ship kayak?

I am planning to solo kayak the Missouri River beginning at Three Forks, MT. I live in Florida and I need suggestions on how to ship my kayak and not break the bank. Does anyone know a carrier I can use that is reasonably priced; less than $400?

It’s not going to be far off from $400

Also, what type of kayak?

Just a thought
Have you considered renting a car that you could drop off in Montana? You could use closed cell pads on top of the vehicle and a lot of rope to tie it down. You’ll probably need a plan to discourage thieves too.

not a bad idea
I’ve considered this option before when shopping boats long-distance. Might not be a cost savings but you also get control.
