Mark,

If you eventually need a transport service you definitely need to shop around, $3,500 sounds REALLY high. I shipped my '67 El Camino from Florida to California in an enclosed trailer for $1,000, that was 2013 which is why I guesstimated $1,500. Also the figure I usually hear on the various classic car sites is $1,300 to $1,500.

I'd go to the Bring a Trailer website, it's a popular online classic car auction site. Most of the cars get shipped interstate, I'm sure they have contacts with auto transport companies. I don't think they'd sell many cars if the buyer had to pay $3,500 on top of the sale price.
