    Hi there,
    I need to move a PM52-2 from Tempe, AZ to Monrovia, CA.
    Need disassembly, loading, delivery and install... everything.
    Any advice or recommendations would be very helpful.
    Thanks

    That's a bit of a haul, isn't it, Tom? NY to AZ to CA and back to NY?

    Being the devil's advocate, I guess what I'm saying is that though the field is narrowing, any mechanic/tech in the poster's immediate area can make full arrangements for a project such as this. Given the machine is a 2/c, there's certain to be a rigging outfit somewhere between that could handle the job. Sending a crew from the East Coast? Ouch! Hell, for the right price and a few weeks notice, I'd take the job :)

    You're right Steve it's the rigging crew that would make it a deal breaker. Not to mention the fact that a disassembly, move, and re assembly would not be the job of choice if I had other work to keep me busy.

    Just an update:
    Company 1: I had to hire my own rigger and they wanted $8k to deliver. They were local to me.
    Company 2: full package, break down rig, ship and install, $10k. East coast, but work in Ca a lot.
    Company 3: same as 2, $7.5k, but I also bought $30k in used cutter, folder and other stuff from them. Local to me.
