COsts of short distance sailboat transport

This has probably been done to death, but I wondered what sort of costs I would probably incur for transporting a 28' sailboat about 20km? I've found one locally which is a project, and want to work out if it's worth movign over to my house to get fixed up. It's not got a trailer, so I'd have to get a specialist with a trailer that would be able to lift it on and off, or get a crane in - I just have no experience of such things...

I've asked a shipper, but not heard back, and due to the price, time is of the essence. Can you help give me an idea? Would $500 be reasonable? It's probably a morning's work for a hauler.
