The only thing I can think of due to its size and weight would be to hire a lumber truck with a crane. Otherwise, you could try to take it apart and rebuild it on the other site. It might be cheaper and easier to leave it behind and build a new one.
According to the 2 main shippers for a typical vehicle the going rate is $975 as of 9/6/07.
Current prices with Matson and Pasha Hawaii are $1079 port to port.
Yes the price for those company's is $1072. Thats a flat rate just for the boat. You also have to factor in getting your vehicle to and from the ports. The cars are put on a semi truck trailer. It can be either open or enclosed (for more protection). Enclosed is safer for your vehicle but cost more money. The trucks can come straight to your house and drop off where ever you like.
Raleigh is an okay place to live. It is by far not the best place to live. It all really depends on what you are looking for. The city has grown a lot and keeps growing b/c of all the people from the northern states relocating here. It is a good city to raise a family in (especially in the Cary, Apex suburbs). Avoid the Capital Blvd area; east Raleigh has more crime than West or North West Raleigh. Despite the growth, there is not much to do in Raleigh. It is quite a boring place to live. Basically the city shuts down at 9PM! It is also not as cheap to live here as a lot of people think. YOu are TAXED to death in Raleigh. Also, the job market has taken a huge hit here. There are not jobs here like there used to be. If you are looking for a city feel, city excitement, great nightlife, tons of things to do then look eslewhere! Raleigh is not it! I know several people that were lured here b/c they have heard some good things about to only be fooled.

The cost for a mover can vary quite a bit. If you use a full-service mover, they will give you an estimate based on the weight of your goods. If you use a self-service mover like Movex, they will sell you a determined amount of space based on your shipment size.
A self-service mover will always be significantly less than a full-service mover because you would be responsible for loading and unloading your household goods.
If you need to go the full-service route, make sure you get a BINDING estimate so that the mover cannot fudge the numbers and try to charge more than the estimate.
