Very best price on a one way rental from CT to SC has been around $1800

I didn't price a container. I figured if I can't afford to get it myself I can't afford for someone else to.
It's a 220ft track. 28 pieces of 8 ft each.

My step son moved from PA to the Memphis area, and used a service that drops a trailer (as in tractor-trailer) off, you load it up, and then there is a partition you put up and you pay based on the amount of space you use.  He did that twice, I think it was priced well below a moving service and much less of a PIA that doing the drive yourself.

Yes you're right. The tracks I've moved have been just like that. But 28 pieces with the banked turns.....not sure 30 ft will be enough.

I want the track. I can buy the track. I can store or set it up here. But I can't move it from CT

I used a 24 foot trailer to haul my 165 foot corner climb from Michigan. And I filled it completely up having only a little room at the back to slide a counter and the computer.

That seems to be a good option. I've got one bidding so far. He is about $400 over my budget. But at least it's movement.

I was mistaken. The smaller track hasn't sold.

Wow. Not to much smaller. I should begin another thread to help advertise since I mistakenly reported it sold.

I'm out of the hunt. Couldn't get the cost of transportation down to within my budget. Size of the Engleman required a large hauler.

Hope someone picks up these great tracks soon.

As I understand it, yes. Need to speak directly to the owners. I'm sure I've disappointed but just can't pull it off.

It was similar to an America Orange. Best information is it has been sold and  removed.

Bob, could that be the UK Orange that at one time was in an Agawam, MA mall? I was only there once for a CASRA race, but the donut appears to be in the right place for it to be. It was then owned by a guy named Bob, who a times had a number of raceways spread across western MA in the Springfield area. This would have been about the same time as when Russ Upton was in Palmer, MA.
