Need a shipping quote

Hey guys,
Interested in shipping an M4 from Islip NY 11751 (long island) to Tarzana, CA 91356.
I know we used to have a forum sponsor, but I cannot find the name now that I need them

Any help is appreciated

Mike

Intercity lines. Expect to pay 1800 to 2000 for an enclosed carrier. Open carrier will be less.

I'd love the chance to drive across the USA. Drive yourself and make a trip of it. Failing that, pay for my flights and I'll do it for you. You may need new tyres once the car arrives, though.

I personally think a closed carrier is a cost that is not worth it. The only impact of using an open carrier is that you will have to wash your car.

BMW ships your brand new car to the dealer in a open carrier.

I have used Trans Global Logistics many times (mostly shipping trans Atlantic) and they are truly AWESOME. They should only charge you $300-$400 at most.

I always use Sal Alvarez there, here is his contact information

Noisygriff,
I have driven more that half way across the country numerous times. It is definitely not as fun as it sounds and no way cost effective, if you value your time....lol

It costed me around $1200 with hotels/gas to drive from where you're at to SoCal. So yea, it's just as much to ship it, lol.
