  David,
I know exactly how much to charge for transporting your machine...
At minimum,.... ONE ARM AND ONE LEG!!!!!

Unless your "full size van" is custom equipped like Scooby's Mystery Machine 
with an electric generator on the roof and you do all your embroidery out the 
back door,... Don't do it man!

I couldn't agree more with everything Roland had to say!
If you have no work and the machine is collecting dust in the back room, then 
maybe but charge no less than $2,000 US dollars which should cover you for your 
time and potential hazards. Unless you really do yourself in by dropping that 
puppy.
If commercial machines were meant to be transported, I'd be out of a job. (Or 
at least I'd work out of the house.)
If you are thinking of doing this more than once,... Invest in a smaller 
machine like a one or six needle - something you can carry by yourself. You'll 
also need two people, not only for moving the machine but one to sew and one to 
handle the customer's orders and organization. Don't think you can do it all by 
yourself. Try to handle the first stitch that needs special attention and 
you'll have a line forming of angry customers wanting to know what's taking so 
long.
Don't worry if you say no to the Event People. They'll always find a sucker to 
do it who is new to the embroidery industry. ....And yes, I was a sucker once 
too. And I didn't even move my machine from my shop. That's a story for another 
day.

Don't do it man!!!
