Hi. Just bought an 08 E-350 Quigley conversion from the Midwest and am eagerly awaiting it to be transported out here to Portland so I can dig into it!

Question #1 - it’s not a Sportsmobile technically, no pop up, just a Diesel Quigley plus a lot of Aluminess it looks like, and I’m DIY-ing the interior. Still ok to be friends with me anyway?

Looks like a nice van. Welcome to the group. What part of Portland do you reside in?

I wish I could recommend someone good but unfortunately the whole industry seems to be run on a pretty slow/old school system. For what it's worth I used You ship it: https://www.you-ship-it.com, a broker, and they found a good transporter, but it took a lot longer than they quoted and they were pretty unresponsive and just unfriendly, overall. I got a pretty good response from Ironclad Auto Transport if you want to try them.

Bellpilot, If its running, and capable of making the trip to your location then you may consider creating a new Thread with a simple title stating what you need - several Members here have transported a number of Sportsmobiles for other members (with nothing but praise from the owners).
