Shipping from Toronto to Vancouver - options?

Looking to ship a car across the country from Toronto to Vancouver. Had a bad experience with TFX International previously. Just wondering is there any other reputable shipper that does a decent job? Don't feel like receiving the car full of dirt/dings/bumper damage.

Thanks!

A friend of mine uses Hansen's (mostly cross border though). He has highly recommended to me many times but I have not used them myself

Hansens ship by rail which is fine if it is not a high value item.Thorsens move all the cars for Porsche Canada.They moved our 959 recently with no issues.i am suprised that you had issues with TFX as I have allways had good service from them.

Thanks for all the input! Can you PM me about the Individual E46 M3 in your showroom as I saw the post got deleted? Would like to come check it out with a friend.

Cheers!
