    Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Dear Rennteamers. I need to relocate to southern CA from NY and I am bringing my cars with me. Not so worried about my daily driver but I need to make sure I deal with a reliable shipper for my Porsche. Has anyone got experience and maybe a recommendation for me?

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    I used Exotic Car Transport, from Florida to Washington State. they were great and on-time, was about $2000 in 05'.

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    I've used Intercity Lines...outstanding door-to-door service. They use enclosed trailers and a rear elevator, no ramps.

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Thanks,

    Lifts and enclosed trailers are the stuff I am looking for. Thanks everyone!

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Intercity Lines for sure! Great service oriented company. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Passport/FedEx seem to be on the ball. They're the only one's that could do a PU for me in a reasonably short time.

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Reliable Transport (no really, that's their name...) is the best in my experience...

    I've done alot of transporting of our collection, and I know a TON of folks with large collections of classics, and I've heard horror stories with just about everybody in the biz.... Except Reliable...

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    sounds like a good time to take a cross country road trip . crg

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Given the hassle/oppty cost of time needed for shipping/re-registering/smog-testing, etc any out-of-state car into CA, many car guys who have done the NYC to CA move have simply gotten new P/F's in CA....

    CA treatment of sales tx on leases is far more efficient than that of most Eastern states....and want to develop relationship w/best dealers in region for any svc needs anyway.....

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    I will check them out.

    Srfcity, since you are in OC; Do you think I can get away without a front numberplate or do I have to add one? Never been pulled over here for that.
    By the way, same car, same color!

    Yea, shouldn't be a problem as long as you stay in OC. LA and especially LAX is where they'll nail you. Old pic, currenty a blk/blk GT3

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Sounds good,
    Just ordered a move with Intercitylines.
    Any good roads in the area?

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    To sum this up, had an excellent experience with Intercity, no problems whatsoever, they used a elevator lift to get the car into the enclosed trailer, the car was then strapped down and covered up for the transport. I have pictures of the loading if anyone is interested.

    Re: Reliable car moving companies, coast to coast

    Try moving company Brooklyn, I have recently used their transport service and they are truly reliable and professional movers.
