Try contacting Richard Ortenheim from Skyview Aviation based at Tracy. He is the DAR that signed off my plane, and mentioned he had a flatbed for transporting airplanes as I have to truck mine from San Carlos to Livermore to do my Phase 1. His company transports and containerizes planes, so he knows what he's doing.
To move my -10 from Castro Valley to LVK I went to Lewis Rents (I think it has changed hands and is now Neff Rentals) in San Lorenzo and rented a tilt-bed truck. Pretty easy to winch it up the tilted flat bed. Make sure you really tie it down - you don't know how bad 580 is until you drive it on a truck suspension. I made two trips; one with the fuselage, a second one with the wings (in a wing stand) and engine (crated). I made a pre-rental visit to Lewis with a tape measure; only one of their two trucks had a bed wide enough for a -10's gear.
I suspect either would be okay for a -9.

Based on photographic evidence, I believe Matt Dralle has used R Lance & Sons Towing in the Livermore area.
