Anyone here in Bangor Maine? Need a dropoff point.

Hi all! Just made the giant leap and bought my first Boxster. (Full service file, 2 owners). It's in Florida, and I'm trying to get it as close to Nova Scotia as I can, but the truck shippers don't go as far as Calais Maine, which is at the border point to New Brunswick, they only go as far as Bangor. So I'm trying to figure out where I can get the car delivered to, so I can drive down from Nova Scotia to pick it up on a flatbed UHaul trailer. Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome. Bangor is a longer drive for me, but I guess I'll have to make the drive.

Never mind!

Disregard the Bangor request above, I found a trucking company that says they can get it to Calais, Maine.

Congrats!! She looks pristine!! Some more details would be really nice to hear. She looks like an 03/04 year but miles? Features? Interior? Mods? How did you find her? etc?

Thanks! It's a 2000 MY with a few things like Litronic headlights, CD changer, Speedster Kit, fancy gauges and shifter and parking brake, colored console area (yellow), 68,000 miles, 2 owners (1 older fellow who owned it less than a year then unfortunately passed away, then the guy I bought it from). Full service file, recent tires, battery, alternator, 60K service, brakes less than 10K ago. This owner did oil changes every 6000 miles. So far so good. Just bought the CTEK battery tender/charger and lighter plugin, it should be waiting for me when I get home. Then the car sits until the snow melts. It was on Autotrader online.

Another Boxster on the Maritime roads, good stuff!
Don't be in a rush to get it out too early in the spring, our roads will be a mess.
Have fun, drive it a lot and keep the rev's up.

LOL, yes, I live on a dirt road that turns to mud in the spring, so it'll wait until that dries out a bit. Thankfully I'm just 700' from my driveway to a paved road.
