Tried to. It got me nowhere. Able Auto (who also claim that 99.9% of their customers are satisfied) told me to take it up with the driver. The driver told me to go 'F' myself. I managed to sand/buff out all the damage. I chalked it up as a lesson learned.

Anyway - I would avoid at all costs places like Able Auto that simply broker your shipping needs to whomever is passing your way.

I know someone who used horseless carriage, they were late too. However, if countrywide does not pickup tomorrow, I will probably cancel. A seven day delay is just too long. Especially when I gave plenty of time for pickup at the dealer.

Do NOT use Countywide Transport!! I used them and had the same experience as 407driver. They lied about the pickup time, they lied about the delivery time and they bent the lower control arms of my Esprit. The Russian driver arrived around 2:00AM whacked out on some stimulant, talking to me at the top of his lungs. I just cringed as one by one, the neighbors
bedroom lights turning on. Worst shipping experience ever -

Was the car shipped in open or enclosed transport?

jturrell I used Intercity Lines last month to deliver a Cayman. It was a very positive experience and a fair price. The drivers are listed on their website, so you know they aren't just contracting out the work to anyone.

comptalk Yep, no doubt. I am using an enclosed transport, not opened.

407Driver They are an online broker, dont actually own any trucks they just pimp out your car to a carrier going your way. hard to get the truth from these guys. I had a painfull experience last year moving a car from washington to texas (not an elise) said I would get the car in one week, took a week just to pick it up and didnt see the car for 27 days. I eventually got the cell number of the driver, turned out to be a russian who spoke NO english I was just happy my car arrived without damage. If I were moving the elise I would use one of the specialty enclosed transporters that will not damage your car, cost more but worth it. Good Luck
