Best enclosed car carrier companies?

Just about to purchase an 08 M3 sedan and am getting it shipped out to my local dealership, has anyone ever had one of their cars shipped? Which company is the most reliable? fastest shipping time? Most careful with the vehicle? Im trying to keep to price under $1,000 and the car is being shipped from L.A., California to scottsdale Arizona. Thanks in advance

Keeping it under a 1k shouldn't be a problem for that distance. Best quote I got for shipping a car from Texas to me in Pa was $785 enclosed through Evergreen Auto Transport. Only con was the time to pick it up could be from 1-5 days for an extra $175 I could guarantee that the car would be picked up in 24 hours or have the fee refunded.

I talked to Linda and she was really helpful and answered all my questions and knew all about cars..



Sounded pretty hot too

I've used Intercity, Ply Car, Autobahn. I'm not sure on cost as all of them were over $1,500 but the routes were different. I'd try Intercity lines and see what they say.

I did Texas to San Diego using earth auto shippers in July. It was $1100 and the car came here perfect in 3 days, 2 less than scheduled.

I worked with a guy named Mark there and they are awesome. I will PM you his contact info.

I'm going to be using Reliable at the end of the year for two cars. Same company that moves the cars for Mecum and RM Auto Auctions.

The best reliable hands are your own if you can pick her up yourself and enjoy the trip. If that is not an option there are many companies as others here recommend. Good Luck and enjoy the car when you meet up with her :-)

Thank you all for the info but I've had the car for about 10 months now and love it! I ended up finding a small company that shipped it for about $750 in an enclosed two-car carrier. Their customer service was amazing and they were very flexible as well. Feel free to PM me for the info if anyone is interested!

I shipped mine with Intercity Lines. Tell them you are a post member and they'll give you a discount.
