if i read that correctly, you are looking to move a 62 foot long mast.

two things,

uship is a broker, so as the others said they add on to the price, but it is only a percentage thing (prolly around 10 to 15%) so worth the service.

however... 62' is your real problem here, and I would double check that uship quote. It sounds too damn cheap to me (was in the trucking industry for years)

look, the issue is the length, a 27' or 40', even a 48' mast no problem, they will fit on a trailer....
but unless things have changed drastically there is no trailer capable of taking a 62' mast by the road without some special oversized permits.
this means the $400 quote is ridiculous.

but what do I know,
I would look for a water option. Or have Brownell help with finding a solution...

Thanks for the insight, the bid looks tempting but I will make a trip to the mast first and check with the yard for ideas. Brownell probably will be my first choice. Let you know how it turns out

Also might have the option to go by sea, have to check with a tug owner i know.

go to the local docks and find a ship ( cargo ship ) going to where you need it or close and offer the captain a few bucks for some deck space
