Does anyone have any suggestions on shipping companies or any goods ways to ship a kayak from Florida to Ohio?
For me Forward Air has been good.
They don’t ship to your door but to a terminal. I have used them to ship 2 yaks before.
I was just shipped a kayak from QCC in Wisconsin. Took just a few days! They used Con-way. They have a website… con-way.com I think. Dont know if this is helpful…
Search the archives…
…you’ll find a ton of info on this. I had good luck with Forward Air.
I’ve never used these folks, however I did get a very reasonable quote in a very timely manner from them. I wish I would have used them.
Do not use Old Dominion – yes, I’ve learned from personal experience.
