North American Van Lines is pretty decent on their pricing most of the
time, they also are very good at handling open/loose items (I had an HP
Designjet 2500CP shipped to me with just a shipping blanket over it and
they treated it with kid gloves.)
Craters & Freighters are totally rip-off artists, avoid!
The other thing to do is ask around, seems a lot of people make runs up
down the East Coast and Cross Country picking up/delivering Vintage
Computer equipment and also look into the Classic Arcade Shippers as
I've used them often to pick up stuff - doesn't matter if its a Pinball
or a Honeywell - if they can bring it onto their trucks they'll do it
for you, and generally a heck of a lot less then commercial freighters.
