About a month ago, I requested suggestions on NY to CA auto shippers. Several people suggested not using DAS auto, but I didn't listen. I am now here to tell you that this outfit is about as unprofessional as it gets. They have pushed the delivery date back twice, at a week each time. They let the car sit for a week, then move it to NJ where it has sat for another 2 weeks. Do not use these people, save yourself the headache. Their prices are reasonable, but it isn't worth it (unless you do not care when your car arrives). Their customer service people basically just hang up on you (clearly they have more calls and complaints coming in than they can handle).

Intercity Lines has the best service ever.. :) But you need to steer clear of the Barret Jackson Auction dates because they're the offical shippers for them..

I used www.horselesscarriage.com on the recommendation of my dealer. I was nervous, but it turned out that I shouldn't have been. I was so impressed. The driver called me occasionally to let me know where he was and what he thought his ETA would be (car transported from CA to TX), he showed up exactly when and where he said he would, he had my car completely shrink-wrapped he literally had to cut away the wrapping before he could get inside to back the car out, the inside of his trailer was scrubbed clean, etc. I mean you could really tell these guys take pride in a job well done.

I don't have any connection to them whatsoever, but want to give credit where it's due.

DAS = Dependable Auto Shippers? I used them once in 2000 with no problems. I dropped the car at their Hayward depot. It showed up in Dallas as promised.

I've also not had a good experience with DAS the one time I used them. My main issue was the poor communication. I guess I should be happy that I got the car without it being damaged, but I'm definitely not using them again either. Conversely, I got a quote from www.a1autotransport.com and they were terrific. I definitely would use them again.
