Auto Transport Company

Any recommendations for a reasonably priced and good transporter that can haul a street rod from Virginia to Idaho? I have need of an enclosed unit with the hydraulic tailgate. The car sits too low to go up ramps and into the unit. Would appreciate any info regarding delivery, etc...

I used "Curves Ahead Transport" once, nice guy and was very good at letting me know where he was and an ETA on picking up the body I had shipped. Cost me $1,000 from Michigan to Las Vegas. Don't know about reasonable price, these guy's are paying $4 a gallon for diesel and also depends on how many other cars are they have going in the same direction......800) 869-4140, Good luck

Is this a broker or an owner? Having trouble finding them on the net. I would prefer an owner/operator but it seems that everybody is now a broker.

Owner/Operator

If you want to use an Owner/Operator you should go over to Jalopy Journal search for "Car Hauling." There are quite a few people on there who can transport a car for you.

I'm considering using a a place called TnT. They have very good customer service.

About 2 years ago I got my car shipped from Texas to New Jersey. This was my first (and the only) time using such a service, and I can say that I all in all it was quite easy and I didn't have any issues with the transportation. I can't remember what the final cost was but it's quite easy to find out this kind of information. You can look for ************ about the whole process.

Do not use Autotrail. Total (dee) had four cars & a harley sent to my new house from Jersey to Florida. Well i told them i will not own the new house till the 23 of sept. kept telling them this. well he wanted to drop them on the 21st. told them i am not in FLA & i have no where to put them as per the contract. So he dropped them over 3 hours away at some yard. .then he cancelled my CC card, Then held them for hostage till i money gramed him cash . Then he told me where they were. .had to pay storage, Then all the gas back and forth . And a tow for my project.
