So, it's finally getting close. My time in Hawaii is almost up and I will be leaving in a few months. My wife and I will be moving to South Dakota. We have decided to ship our vehicles rather than sell, as they are both paid off, and adding a car payment to a new job, college, and a mortgage just didn't seem like a bright idea to us. My problem is is that when I shipped them out here, I used Matson and shipped from San Diego. I don't think Matson has a fleet of semis though for the cross country trip once they are offloaded onto the pier, and doing a winter road trip is out of the question due to time constraints and potential heavy winter conditions. If anyone knows of a reliable company that will do trans-ocean and trans-continental shipping, I would greatly appreciate it. So far, I am bombarded with search results that only offer one or the other. Thank you.
Yes I am with the military, but they will only ship one vehicle. We decided to ship my wife's Cobalt on Uncle Sam's dime since it was the heavier and overall larger vehicle of the two. That leaves me to pick up the bill for the Fiero.
Anyone have any experience with shipping their car across the country? I'm sending my car to DCR headquarters from some TLC. The first company I contacted, Auto Shippers America, was $675 one way. I'm looking for a reputable shipping company to make sure it gets there in one piece! Thanks
Just bought a Charger in October. Had to have it shipped from the point of sale to my house. The first broker (Get it Done Transportation) I used was not that good or honest. Thankfully, another broker saw the delay in pickup and called me about the situation. He was true to his word and handed me my car the next day. Here's the contact info:
I used uship.com bidding service to ship from Seattle to Dallas. Three cars (2 Fiero, 1 Reatta) was $2,193.99. I bought the driver Starbucks which went a long way in how he treated them. I begged for top level load for the Fiero I cared most about and he obliged. Normally top load is reserved for those who pay extra. Montway Auto Transport won the bid. The driver seemed to do a good job but on the drop off point, my family said he was covered in grease and dirt from having to crawl and secure under vehicles. I had expected this and wrapped my entire grey cloth interior, doors, handles in carpet wrap they sell at Home Depot. So keep this in mind too.
