I also need transport. My allocation is on the east coast and I'm in Arizona. I think it will cost me about $2k.

Let me know who you guys are going with.

I used Intercity when having my 1M delivered. Great company. Would do it again for sure.

Exotic Car Transport of Orlando. Shipped both my GT3's from FL to TX and they are awesome. They own and operate their own trucks unlike most "shipping" companies who are just brokers and subcontract the shipping to random trucks. I paid about 1200 bucks enclosed with a flat lift gate truck. Let's just say the first time there was a car on the truck worth about 7X what my GT3 was worth.

959...

As a 17 year old(1987) kid we were having a long weekend vacation in Southwest Germany (BW)
So we visited Stuttgart(because I insisted lol) and in front of the Intercontinental hotel entrance was a grey 959 standing....BB plates.

Mouthwatering.

But now I actually prefer the F40

Cheers
Robin

Love love love the 997 GT3s just hope the prices come down when they release the 991.2 GT3 MT and everyone that has been holding onto them buy that instead.

Why don't you get your car delivered to you at the Pacific driving center in CA?

No personal experience with shipping yet but I happened to go to Intercity's website today and request a quote for shipping from the Carolinas to Florida. Pricey for sure, but they transport a lot of pricey vehicles, so I would trust them. This may seem totally strange but I noticed them first on "chasing classic cars" and those guys for sure know who to trust!

Horseless Carriage and Plycar are the two I see at the local high end dealership all the time loading or unloading Pagani, Bugatti, McLaren, Ferrari, etc. They wouldn't use them if they sucked.

I've used these guys a few times. Great quotes, so-so on the scheduling. Very reasonable and safe transportation.

Good luck!

I used Horseless Carriage years ago on a Ferrari and they were great... One question to ask is if they offload the vehicle at any point. If possible, you don't want offloading and storage since this will slow down the transport. Also, if possible ask for a top load, so nothing drips on your car. They are a covered transport company which is more expensive, but for cars like this, well worth it.

Montway is just a broker, they don't use their own trucks and operators. Plycar does.

Here is some food for thought...





PS: I also would go with either Horseless Carriage and Plycar. Go buy a copy of Hemmings Automotive News... any of the big shipping companies are stand up shippers.
