"I was moving from VA to NY and rather than deal with I-95 traffic I decided to hire a car service. All the companies I called were around the same price. But, I" am so glad I went with
. From the first outreach online to the driver's pick-up they were superb. In fact it's a shoutout SUPERB. There is so much stress in moving, and with other services one would need a car service, and dealing with
was five star all the way.
on the phone was professional, organized and fulfilled all the promises including a confirmation phone call the day before. E-mails were clear, well laid out and detailed all the components of the price. It also included the name of the driver and license plate of the car so you know you're getting into the right one. The driver was extremely polite and drove safely with all those huge trucks barreling by. We arrived in New
right on schedule and instead of being a nervous wreck it was a very calm person who waited for the movers. Thank you
for making this long drive so smooth, safe and relaxing. You truly are golden in my book.

"I was unable to reach my first broker who had not given me any paperwork on the move of my mom's car from Florida to L.A. I was scheduled to be on a plane" the next day. I called
at U.S. Transport. He had a truck for me in five minutes and paperwork to me within ten. The truck arrived three hours after I arrived in Florida and the move went off without a hitch. The car was delivered in exactly seven days. I'm pleased all around.

Check your owner's manual, making sure to look up the exact model you have. May also show on the nameplate - usually on driver's side door or door jamb. Read up on passenger/cargo effect too, because the "rated" capacity is with no cargo and only a normal (I think they use 150#) driver.

 

Quick web search showed rated from 1500-4000# towing capacity and tongue weights from 150-400# depending on model and if has towing package - so you would have to check tongue weight and total trailer weight, but a 700# travel trailer (assuming that is total weight, not empty) certainly is likely to be viable. What it can handle safely also depends on what else in in the vehicle and where it is located with respect to the rear axle - so if all the seats are filled with adults for instance, your towing capacity may go to zero.

 

My recommendation, especially if travelling at highway speeds or long distance, is never exceed 75% or rated trailer load. Also - read up on tongue weight and what it does for handling and vehicle steering ability, so you get it right - too much and you risk tralier hitch failure, rear tire overloading, and poor steering because too much weight is off the front end. Too little and the trailer will tend to "hunt" - swerve back and forth.

Lajti of
Barkhamsted Auto Transport Companies Provider Name Locked
was awesome! I explained my frustrations with the lack of professionlism and action of three previous brokers I had attempted to employ and he was quite understanding. I called "Move My Auto" (an Angie's list member) two months prior and let them know I needed a vehicle moved from Virginia to Nevada. Made the reservation and was assured my vehicle would be shipped in June. My mistake for trusting the dispatchers at Move My Auto. When my truck didn't show up I called and spoke with one of the ladies at Move My Auto. She complained about not being able to get the trucking companies to get back to her, and she was frustrated and didn't know why the truck didn't show up as scheduled. I extended my stay in Virginia because I was assured a truck would show up and it didn't. Fired the ladies at Move My Auto (and recommend no one use them) and went with AutoTransporteronline.

talked the talked, but couldn't walk the walk. After explaining that no guarantees are implied, I extended my stay again in Virginia with no luck of getting my vehicle transported. I left the vehicle with a neighbor and left town en-route to Nevada. Communicated with Mr.

Auto Transport. Another nightmare. Where

was talking up the service and not delivering it,
Barkhamsted Auto Transport Companies Provider Name Locked
wouldn't return my calls. I made multiple phone calls to

and US Transport and let loose on him about my bad experience with unprofessional transport brokers. He advised me to call the previous brokers and make sure my vehicle wasn't listed with them on the truckers dispatch Website. I contaced the three failed brokers and told them to remove my vehicle listing with their company. (This is the only time
Barkhamsted Auto Transport Companies Provider Name Locked
got back to me. They so happened to have a truck available at that time. Nice but still fired) Once I did that,
Barkhamsted Auto Transport Companies Provider Name Locked
said give it a couple of days. Sure enough I was able to get my vehicle picked up and transported to Nevada, no thanks to the previous three brokers. The

I was concerned shipping my new Jeep across the country. I had heard horror stories of other peoples' cars getting damaged in transport. After much research I found Executive Austo Shippers on Angies List and decidied to try them.

First of all the basics: I used this firm to ship my 91 Jeep Cherokee from LA to Minneapolis - it went fine, it cost pretty much what I expected, and I'd use them again.
Had originally contacted a logistics firm who I do a lot of work with about doing the shipping on the Jeep ("logistics" being a fancy term for "moving anything from point A to point B in a timely, cost effective manner - no matter how insane the actual situation may be").
Barkhamsted Auto Transport Companies Provider Name Locked
told me that he wouldn't be cost effective, but that he had several firms that he knew to have good reputations for auto shipping. He shared, I contacted three firms and selected Executive - not necessarily the cheapest (although within $110 of that price), but well reviewed and very professional.
A few things to note:
Like most everybody else in this industry, they're really brokers - finding and selling (and managing) space on auto haulers. So they're dealing with a fluctuating supply.....which is what leads to them giving you a "window" in which to do the pick-up. In my case, that was a little outside of the original target. No big deal - we were able to work out a pick-up at my office with somebody else doing the hand-over. Not ideal, but workable Because they're dealing with finding space when and where they can, notices for things like pick-up sometimes come a little closer to the actual date than they would ideally offer. Again, in my case that meant notice of the pick-up date coming in the evening before the pick-up instead of a day or two in advance. Again, we worked it out (and Executive had made it clear they could offer other dates if we needed to adjust)
When they (Executive) give you the pick-up info, they share the contact info with the actual hauler (in my case, both the firm and the driver). You've got a certain amount of responsibility at that point for managing the details - I'm not sure how deep Executive might be willing to get into managing that - I found the driver easy to deal with directly (but, then again, I've dealt with shipping and truck drivers a lot in my career). I'd also note that the driver was incredibly communicative and flexible - top quality service.
Last thing - you have the option of booking your vehicle onto the top deck of the hauler for an added fee (and more restricted availability of space). I didn't do that, and the Jeep arrived covered in engine oil and brake/transmission fluid from the POS Thunderbird parked over it. Not just regular road grime from the trip - a coating of oil and fluids that have been an adventure to remove. My own fault - they were very clear that this was a potential risk (and it's a 20+ year old vehicle, so I'm not terribly finicky about it). But be aware - whatever is parked above you is going to leak onto your vehicle. If that's an issue for you - buy a top deck space.
So - good company, good experience. Go into the process with reasonable expectations and an understanding ot Executive's role in the process and you should be just fine!

From my first inquiry and interaction with them to the pickup and delivery of the vehicle, everything went very well. There were no surprises, delays or problems. They did a great job securing the vehicle and taking care of it while in transport. The drivers knew what they were doing and they were very professional. I would highly recommend

Need car transported across US. Guy was very specific about the process and timing windows. In addition, he gave tips regarding what to be aware of. For example, additional storage in the vehicle may incur additional costs because of the additional weight factor. Actual charges is up to the driver. Pickup window was held, 8/3-8/5, planned pickup was 8/5 actually happened 8/4 and exceeded expectations. Delivery was planned for 5 to 7 days later. We were surprised to hear 2 days later the Carrier was in the State ready to delivery within a two hour window. This worked great for us and the location was up the street. Drivers were friendly, engaging, and service oriented. Vehicle had no signs of abuse or use. Would use them again!!!!
