You will need to find a good long haul trucker for an accurate price. You are far enough away that it is more than a one day trip and the operator will be forced to rest by law. He will need to find a back haul to make it profitable.
Based on what I paid a year ago for a 500 mile round trip, I think you could expect at least $55 to 60 dollars a ton but maybe more due to the overnight consideration.
Perhaps others with experience to the West of PA can chime in and add more accurate info.
