Need Help Shipping BMW

Any input from folks who have shipped a car before. I'm moving this summer from KS to NC, and need to ship my e24 M6. I'm looking for a carrier who will take good care of my car (preferably enclosed transport). I've checked out FedEx and gotten a quote, just wondering if anyone else out there has any advice on who I should check out.

Thanks!

I've never had to ship a car, but I've heard very good things about www.intercitylines.com

Good luck with the move!

don't forget about the option about hiring a driver to take it for you

My previous business was a high performance car dealership.

I used a broker and he was fantastic!

Call Glenn 715-849-5972

He finds the best deal along with the best carrier available for that load. Saves $ and great service. He did A LOT of shipping for me.

Tell him Brandon (AutoConnection USA) sent you.

Hope this helps.

Make sure it's closed. Open transport does "wonders" on paint.

Here you go Zephyr15...



Thanks for all the input guys. I'm trying not to put 1,200 unnecessary miles on the car, so shipping is definitely my first choice. I think I'll give Glenn a call.

Brandon, I called Glenn the other day. He was most helpful. And he said to let you know he appreciates the references. Thanks again for the help!!

Beautiful M6 - you really should let an older bro drive it soon...

My favorite M6, very classy look. IMO better than the current one (no disrespect). The only thing that gets me going with the current one is the v10 sound. They all look the same inside

I moved three years ago over 3,000 KM ~ 1,800 Miles east. The cost to move one car was $1500- Canadian, $3,000- for both. I ended up driving both my then M3 and my Jag myself since I did not thrust anyone else with my car. The
estimates were from the railroad and moving companies.

On the the other-hand, if it is a time situation and you must have them shipped there are plenty of moving companies that do this sort of thing.

Here is one Google example, there are more, get some estimates. Good luck. If it was my M6 I would drive it or find someone to do that, there are people out there that would do it (they as you know drive cars from eastern Canada for people back and forth to Florida).

Good luck with your move!
