Default Latest recommendations for car shipping

Looking for recommendations on who to get quotes from. Reading online reviews is all over the map for most companies. Thanks in advance.

Just used reliable for the 4th time. Consistent and “reliable”!. May be a few bucks more but some other services I have used are guys w trucks and trailers that are managed by brokers and frankly the drivers aren’t sleeping much and that scares me a bit w my car on the back. JMHO

I did talk with them. As much as I would love to use them they were out of my budget. I found a independently owned and operated family company that is going to do it. Fingers crossed to the point of no circulation.

Good deal. Yep, I used a big well known carrier (name identical to what ID you’d use to get back into the US through customs ) to ship Kelly’s 911 down from CT. Not only did the driver kill the battery, he broke the ELECTRIC hood opening latch trying to open the hood, despite the DEAD BATTERY! Of course, I called, and told them right off the bat I know the deal, it’s my word against his and of course, I’m wrong. As expected; crickets.

I know who I won’t be using ever again. It’ll be Reliable from now on.

Cheers
Dave

Those stories are my biggest fear. It is scheduled for pickup Wednesday with delivery next Saturday

I'm sure you'll be ok, and I was pretty shocked when I came home to those two things. Not only was the 2yr old battery dead, but it was sooooooo dead it wouldn't hold a charge. Took it to NAPA, and as suspected, dead cell. Latch was pushed into place and after I got the battery installed and tried to open it, that's when I noticed that it was broke.

First time I've ever had a problem with any shipper, ever.

Cheers
Dave

Just did a deal with Reliable, and it was pretty effortless all around. You get what you pay for in this industry, and sometimes you don't even get that.
