    Not that I think this website needs ANOTHER section but there is something I have seen on other 4x4 forums that I thought TW could benefit from... I'll call it TW Shipping for now.

    Basically it will be a section where people can discuss and coordinate their long distance trips with people that need things shipped along your route.

    For example I recently got a very cool member on here to transport a set of 5 tires/wheels from Florida to Maryland for the price of a bottle of Crown Royal! It would have cost me about $200+ to go through greyhound!! I bought the tires from a guy about 20 min away from him and he was driving up to Connecticut so I met him along his route. It was AWESOME!!!

    So I think there should be a section where people can notify everyone that they have a trip coming up from XXX to ZZZ and will have YYY amount of space if anything needs to be shipped along that route. And people asking if anyone is traveling between XXX and ZZZ and has any space in your truck for WWW. I have also seen some people with flatbed trailers do this as a side income making cross country trips every few months and delivering rigs and other large objects for people.... pricing is up to you and the shipper to figure out but its usually not much since the shipper is heading that way anyway.




    WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK??

    Us Canucks get crummy shipping rates so we have what we call a border run. Ship close to the border and then one guy will go pick it up. It works well so I can see this being a great idea. Something to consider for sure.
