Need local hauling advice (Willamette Valley, OR)


In response to a question I posted to this forum about buying and driving my own 33K GVWR rig to AZ from OR, the most frequent response I got was "don't do it- hire a professional to haul it for you!"

Well, after an unsuccessful attempt to ignore that good advice, I've now come around to the combined wisdom of the folks on this site. So now I have a follow up question:

How does one go about arranging this sort of partial load (~18K lbs. of 12"x12" Douglas fir beams) hauling? I've only managed to find websites with cookie-cutter forms for getting hauling quotes, none of which I trust. I want to talk to someone local and face-to-face, preferably an independent driver or outfit.

So any advice for the best way to arrange this would be appreciated, and if you know someone from western Oregon who'd is willing and able to haul a load like this from Eugene, OR to Nogales, AZ, please let him/her or me know!

Take a ride around your community on the weekend,see where the respectable looking trucks(with flatbeds) are parked,then stop in on monday and have a chat. Visit any local truckstops,look for business cards on the bulliten board,talk to folks that work there-they mayknow local haulers. As a last resort,PM me i'll see if my office will post the load for you.
