I know, it's a tractor site, but nobody likes to "dead-head" (empty trailer on a return trip) and you might be able to post your request and find a "back-haul" to your area.
I sold a big truck about 18 mos. ago and I pointed the new owner to that site. He found a hauler who picked up the truck and delivered it for half the cost of a towing company.

on a side note, id rather be there when the cars are traded, i want to make sure that noone gets ripped on this, or that noone steals the cars.

On the deal I referenced, the hauler called the buyer.............he didn't want to deadhead out to an area where he would be picking up a load, so he drove 90 miles out of his way to pick up the vehicle I sold, just to defray his fuel/food costs.
If it doesn't work out, sorry.
Like a steer, all I can do is try..............

i cant afford a hauling co. or to have a trucker hual the cars. the car hualers want like $675 each way.

Also, the truck I had hauled was picked up by a tractor collector (not a "trucker", just an aficionado); who had a 26' gooseneck trailer (Sullivan, nice) w/beavertail, pulled by a 1 ton '04 Chev. Duramax crew-cab. He had room for passengers........
I drove the truck I sold on to the trailer for the buyer (he wasn't comfortable doing it) and supervised all aspects of the business transaction. Truck weighed in at 7500 lbs. empty and was 25' long...........the rear axle just fit.
It was hauled for a flat fee; some others may want a per mile rate, depending on the route. Flat rate is better, that way the cost doesn't change, even if the hauler has to make a detour.
It's really just people helping others get their stuff (in their case, very large and heavy stuff) to where they want it without a "deadhead" run........if you read it, you'll see guys with larger trailers haul more than one on the same trip........this works out well for everyone involved.
If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make it happen .
If I didn't live 3000 miles away..............sorry I can't help out .
At least this post will "bring it back to the top".
