Advice on Shipping a Car from Ut to Ca?

What's the best way to get a car shipped from Salt Lake City to San Francisco? Right now I'm told it will cost around $500, I don't know how long t will take, and I don't know if it will get damaged in transit.

If you can share a reputable shipping company it would be much appreciated!

Cause fongpi lacks common sense. Check out his previous threads. He's just trolling. Don't bother responding to him.

Find a driver to bring it to you ... If you cannot find one let me know I'll gladly drive it to the west coast ... Some spots along Route 66 I missed in 2009 ... Would give me an opportunity to see it during the drive west.

Bet you would enjoy that drive yourself ... Take some time off and Just Do It life is short so enjoy!

Is an 11 hour drive really worth saving about $200 bucks? I think picking a shipper is still the best way.

Are you serious? Now your following me around making useless comments in my legitimate threads? Really?

Tell me, what is so implausible about not wanting to drive for 11 hours while sacrifice a weekend?

It is you who are the troll.

Fly to Alabama. Take the Greyhound Bus to Utah. Buy the car. Get gas for the car. Drive home(put your address in Nav.) Car will seem nicer than bus. Smile.
