A forum member here told me he has used Western Auto Transport and they were great. I called them for a quote and they were $600 less than Reliable for enclosed transport. Looks like they use the same equipment with lift gates and wheel tie downs. Anyone here use them?

Just used Intercity to ship my 08 Exige Club Racer. They gave me a great price (only about $100 more than the brokers) and we on time, professional, and extremely courteous. They picked up the car from the seller on the exact day I requested, then got it to my door at the time/dar they specified. Only 3 days from Denver to Dayton, OH. Communication was great. Emails were answered quickly, there was always someone to answer my questions at the main line, and they gave me the trucker's cell phone so I could get updates (although he primarily called me). Car was in perfect shape when it arrived. Anyway, great experience and I would highly recommend them.

When I bought mine I had it shipped from outside Boston to my front door. The seller had a friend, Paul Fluckiger , at Silverstone Motorcars. Paul set me up with a shipper who loaded the car first, installed the car cover, sent me a whole bunch of pics of the car loaded, secured, and then covered. He also carried 3boxes of parts plus the original tires and wheels. The car did not move until it was unloaded at my front door. Shipper was a great guy who showed extreme care. $1500.00 door to door with a $100.00 tip! Shippers info is:
Clark Roan
cell number is 520-603-0803

Great service, kept me advised for timing, and she made the trip with some fantistic upscale cars as company. I would advise anyone who is shipping an upscale car to give him a call. Top notch service all the way!

Hi all.

I just moved from California to Texas and used Intercity to ship my Elise.

Their service and communication was great. The car arrived in excellent condition and the driver went out of his way to help.

I would definitely use them again.

+1 on intercity. You want this done right. They transported from Connecticut to San Diego with my Elise and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. With all the horror stories I've heard I wouldn't think twice about using them again.

I've had good experience with a1autotransport.com in the past (used them three times total). I'd definitely recommend using an ecnlosed carrier no matter who you choose, which costs a bit more but it's worth it in my estimation. Especially if you're having it shipped all the way across the country.
