Auto transport

Just bought a 72 convertible on ebay. Need to ship it from Pa to Ft. Lauderdale. I dont know who to use. The car does not have a top on it and will need a covered transporter. Any one have experience/advice on who i might use? Thanks!

Re: Auto transport

Reliable Transport or Exotic Transport have gotten cars safely transported to Southeast Florida for me in the past,

however, there are several companies running up and down the East Coast right now shipping the snowbirds back home.

Also, you might try contacting Mike (704EVER on this site).

He may be heading back down here with an empty trailer.

Re: Auto transport

You might also try Intercity Lines. They are based out of Warren, MA and routinely travel up and down the east coast. I have used them twice on CA to MA shipments. Pricing was better than other big name shippers fwiw.

Tried Intercity, they said they dont do the Pittsburgh area. Also p.m.'d Mike 704ever. Haven't heard back. Reliable is very pricey. Montway had good pirce but mixed reviews. Said they are only brokers. Any thoughts on them? Maybe some others? Thanks guys, appreciate your time.

Re: Auto transport

That's about what I thought.

You could maybe find it cheaper, but I don't think much cheaper.

Has anyone used Montway? They have a 5 star rating, but are brokers. They claim all but 2 carriers are brokers. Think they are right?

Re: Auto transport

I used a broker once. When the car finally showed up it was in a u-haul truck and the guy had 2x12's with cinder blocks to support it as ramps. I just closed my eyes till it was over. Good thing it was a Nash Metropolitan!
