Unhappy Help !!!!

I am a self-sufficient man I HATE to ask for favors. But I found my self in a pickle, my buddy that was supposed to lend me a truck and gooseneck trailer to move a 40 foot shipping container 86 mile from Ortonville to the farm in Marine City has wigged out again. He does that from time to time he is a LONG story but either way, I find my self searching for a way to transport this thing on or before Saturday. Is anyone able to help me

Bob, I'm sorry to hear this. I wish I could help, but I don't have a truck or trailer that could move that kind of load.

I got mine from a online auction from time to time you can find a deal but you need to look for it

They seem to run about $2300 or so if you just call and have it dropped. I have been looking too.
