That kind of money, take 4 or 5 days and go get it.

I went 785 miles round trip a week ago for a pin, long day but kinda fun

Are you able to get the seller to split the trip with you and meet you halfway? If money isnt a concern, maybe the seller can take a small road trip....?

Talk to dennisk - he had a large neon sign shipped and damaged in shipping

If cost is no issue, perhaps pay a friend/family member to go pick it up for you??

Watch the neon club thread, as I expect Ryan Claytor to reveal it over there very soon.

We are talking about a 2300 mile round trip, and that's just not in the cards. I need to find a shipping option. I have it on uShip and requested someone that has moved them before. The sign maker has used UPS and FedEx to pack and ship before, but I don't want to use them if I don't have to go that route. I'm going to keep exploring options.

They don't have a location near the sign maker, unfortunately. Thanks for the lead, though.

Will the seller pack it properly?
I once bought a neon sign, it was packed in a wooden box and then filled with Styrofoam

Shit. I'm in Michigan. I am off work so if you wanted to get a sprinter van rented for like $60 a day I could drive it down to you (looked at renting one to move a pin, most economical way over shipping).

I'll look at anything that gets it to me safely. But I'm not seeing options that don't start charging per mile after a set mileage allowance, that is less than half of what this would take round trip.

Yeah should have shipped it via freight given the size. I lucked out on the second go, the neon bender had a family member coming to the area and so just had them bring it to me.

I just bit it off and paid a dude to drive it down to me in his van. It’s here and it’s safe and I don’t have to beg Josh to make it again. Worth every penny.

Glad you got it safely. He does nice work!
