Default Car transport recommendations

Anyone have any good recommendations on getting a car shipped from the West Coast to Ohio? Being a race car, it'll need to be in an enclosed trailer. Btw, it's my first class car, so I'll be soliciting some advice from you veterans here.

Thanks, Jim.

As them about what they call the First Available Service it's cheaper but a little slower! Still great service.

Reliable is absolutely, unquestionably, the best in the business. Expensive? Yes, but the car will safe, on-time, and as clean as it was when it was loaded. I've used "no-name" car haulers with "enclosed" trailers and they are little more than flatbeds with a canvas top on them. Spend the money and be happy with what comes out of the trailer.

Thanks for the info. I got a quote from Reliable this evening. Their rates are quite reasonable, especially considering the distance.

I have shipped several million dollars of collector/muscle cars across this country and I've always relied on Blue Highways. Top notch service and outstanding rates.

It's likely I have used all of the well-known hauling firms, as well as some less publicized. Blue Highways will always be the hauling company of choice for me.

I just checked out the Blue Highways website. Has anyone used Cars Enclosed? Their name came up too. Reliable said a minimum of 3-4 weeks, and that could be problematic.

I used intercity lines from NY to CA. It worked out great.

Plycar shipped my Top Sportsman car from Texas to L.I., it cost about $1600 they deal with all kinds of high end autos. Based on L.I., and have 4 other terminals across the country. The west coast terminal is in Torrance, Ca. One of the best in the business.
