Does anyone have any experience with auto shippers? I bought a car in Paramus New Jersey the week before Christmas and I'm trying to get it shipped to Washington State, and so far the broker I have used has left me with empty promises.
I'd like to deal directly with the shipper, but they're hard to find.
I also want an enclosed trailer as it's a new car. It's a 16 Ford Edge in case that matters.
And yes I flew to LaGuardia the 16th, and back out on the 17th. Quick trip.
If you need any local assistance, I live literally 10 minutes away from Paramus. I have bought about half a dozen on eBay and online and shipped using Uship.com. Some carriers are better then others , very few are great, they all over commit and under deliver as far as delivery times. Good luck!!
Again, if I can help locally feel free to reach out!

Don't use Uship for anything call Reliable as suggested they cost a bit more but it's worth the money and inside not an open trailer. They may not have much available if you wait Barrett-Jackson starts in a couple weeks.
For a good view of Uship try and catch a couple episodes of "Shipping Wars" on cable tv. This chronicles the adventures of Uship "elite" carriers. As a transportation professional I am astonished any of these clowns still have CDLs.

If Reliable is to expensive you may want to lookup some classic car dealers on the East coast I have spoke with these folks about a couple cars they should be able to steer you in the right direction for a good car hauler, I don't remember who they used I almost bought a car from them to be hauled out here great guys on the phone didn't mind talking or rushing you.
I can't recall the cost I think it was $1,600 uncovered $2,100 covered, from the East Coast to here you may need to wait after they pick yours up till the hauler has a close to full load to get the best price.
I've shipped many cars in the past if it's an open trailer you could have a cheap wrap made which will bring you up to about the same price as a closed trailer but worth the money it's a gamble with an open trailer check your insurance most won't cover hauling damage unless it's a classic or you pay for a rider on a newer vehicle.
