The good news is you bought it in a good area where there is no freight to haul back to LA except yours. And there are quite a few trucks up there that would like to get back to LA. That backhoe is going to take about 30' of deck space with the back hoe spread open to lower it enough to make legal height on a step deck trailer. One thing that would save you some money is knowing if the origin has a way of loading without the trailer having ramps. Also, can you get it off on your end the same way? Or, do you know it needs ramps on both ends? It is easier to find a truck without ramps than one with ramps. I know the average weight on these is about what the specs show on TractorData.com. Ask the seller if he has ever transported it and if he ever weighed it. That will help because weight is important. The height of a step deck is 40" off the ground. Also, is there a time limit on pick up or is the origin okay with keeping it there for a few days to help you get a good rate? All these things affect cost. If you get a quote from anybody, know that price could vary as much as $500 or more from the next guy, so know who you are dealing with. Watch your replies to your question closely in the next two days and I'll see what I have going your way. Maybe I can help.
