Wow, that's expensive.

Were it the UK, I'd possibly suggest using the likes of Taxi-Vans. I  
used them to move house - it was 300 quid and two blokes turned up  
with a van, piled my house into it at one end, drove 120 miles, then  
filled the flat up at the other. Despite running out of packing boxes  
and some stuff travelling loose, nothing broke in transit. Call me  

I think I'd trust them to move an E10k for me. If I wasn't too fussed  
about when it arrived (they'd wait until they had a vanful from other  
customers and do a same-day collection and delivery), it'd probably  
only set me back about a ton to move it across the UK.
