R&J elite transport is based out of Georgia and transported my viper across the country for me.

Excellent service. Highly recommended.

I've heard very good things from Intercity Lines. They only do enclosed transports so it's not the cheapest.

Intercity has been advertising in Cavallino Magazine for probably over 20-years.

The lower end car carriers can tell you a time frame and be weeks off w/excuse truck broke down - a scenario I've heard told to me by friends twice.

It has been many years since I tried this, but would recc that you use enclosed trailers, unless it is really a 'driver-quality' paint job. Lots of flying crap on the roadways. Don't cover an open car w/ a tarp, or the wind will 'sand' wherever it flaps and moves (look at how the dealerships protect for transport - stuck-on sheets and foam). Would also suggest not using anybody who goes with 'contractors' or farms out the work as a 'broker' - almost zero accountability (sure you might get some insurance money to pay for the repairs, if you are lucky....). Hemmings should still have a ton of reputable advertisers for this - used to have many full page spreads, ranging from reasonable to 'valet and champagne'. A few years ago, a friend did this but shipped his DD (full of fragile stuff he didn't want movers to touch) and drove the fun car on the cross-country - didn't have to sweat it that he used a cheapo brokerage, and got to see the Rockies the way they were meant to be seen.

Use Intercity. Don't use anyone else. Don't try to save couple of hundred bucks, you really get what you pay for on this service.

Don't ever use DAS dependable auto service, they will ruin your car.

This. Pay for quality or roll the dice is what I learned recently. Lmk if they can't move your car, they couldn't move mine and referred me to the broker they use from time to time. I had a bit of a delay but service, trailer, and deliver was a1.

You can save $ going with montway on open transport, it just depends on what you want....

Just food for thought, have you considered driving it? I went with a friend a couple months ago to Denver, CO to pick up an C63 and drive it back to Seattle, WA (this same friend, we went to San Diego two years ago and picked up a WRX). We considered shipping it but it was hard to purchase such a car without seeing it in person. And in terms of money, it came out to be the same price as if we had it shipped over (plus shipping company had about two week delay). We drove like 20 hours non stop (he drove, I slept; I drove, he slept) so we really got to learn the car in the mean time.

Used Montway from IL to CA recently. Driver was professional and delivered fairly quickly. Price was very competitive.

Be careful with inner-city they're not the same operation they were years ago. They picked up a 981 l sold and it was an open truck stacked two high that they subcontracted too. If you do use them make sure it's enclosed trailer with a liftgate and one of their trucks. If you try to negotiate with them on price they subcontract it out to the lowest bidder. carl

Whatever you do, for the love of whatever you cherish, do not use uShip.

I have an excellent guy in Atlanta (delivered my X5 to Texas) but not sure if he'd drive all the way to California. Ex-cop, pulls them on a flat bed.

Shipping my car from NY to CA

I'm looking into shipping my car from NY to CA and would like to know if anyone has any connections in the industry. I'd also be interested in getting some feedback from companies including Montway. Thanks

Coast to coast shipping company

Anyone know a reliable car shipping company (non-broker) that is cheap?
The last time I shipped is over 10 years ago and tried to call them but not impressed with their terms and price.

Thanks!

What you want to do is download the uship app and post an ad with all the details... Wait three days and you'll have the best market price whether covered or non covered. There are tons of reviews so you can't go wrong. I've used it twice to ship motorcycles and all my experiences were great... Highly recommend!

I just shipped a 2015 M5 from SoCal to Minneapolis using Intercity. It appeared to be the best from the research I did. I had the car in 6 days from purchase. Pricing was fair, communication was good, and quality of trucks was outstanding. I would highly recommend Intercity if you want enclosed transport.
