Anyone have any recommended vehicle transport companies? I will most likely be shipping a Hummer H3 from Moab UT to Chubbuck (Pocatello area) ID.
So far, I have received quotes from about 10 firms, and all are within 20 bucks of each other (approx. $545.00). So it comes down to references for a certain company.

Basically what you will be dealing with are brokers, as a rule. They take a piece of the action, the independent company getting the rest. Just be sure your car is insured against damage in transit (check with your insurance carrier).

Maybe list your top three companies and somebody can comment on them. I think most of the companies that coordinate the vehicle transport are local to an area, not nationwide - my experience anyway. Good luck.

Actually, every quote I have received, except for one has been from large nationwide firms. But here are the top three

AmeriFreight, US wide based out of GA...BBB rating of A+
Freedom auto transport US wide based out of FL... BBB rating of A-
Showroom transport US wide based out of VA BBB rating of A-

Reason says go with the A+ rated firm, but just curious if anyone has had any personal experience with any of these firms.

I'm having my car shipped from NY to AZ in a couple of weeks and I'm using All Aboard Transport. Gentleman I dealt with on the phone was very nice and helpful. If you want more info, feel free to DM me.

Thanks to all.
I've decided to get my exact date from Atlas for household moving and then contact the three and see who can match the pickup date as close as possible.
