Can you recommend a car carrier company for shipping one of our cars?

Do you know of any dependable companies for shipping one of our cars? I was hoping that you might have some suggestions for a good service. It is difficult to tell who might be dependable from a Google search. All of the sites seem to be brokers that then generate a lot of quotes with random trucking services, but all of the reviews I have read for all of the services are abysmal.

Customers often ask us "do you move cars," and the answer is yes...we most definately do move cars. However, moving companies move cars inside their enclosed trailers, which means that they can only get two cars on each trailer. Alternatively, specialized car carrier companies are equipped with trailers which are able to move nine (or more!) cars on each trailer. Therefore it's a simple matter of economics that, if you give your car to a moving company, you are going to pay a whole lot more to move the vehicle than a specialized car carrier company would charge. As a result, we recommend that you find a reputable car carrier company for the most economical method to move your vehicles.

Many of our peers in the relocation industry have reported good experiences with both of the following companies...

Reindeer Auto Transportation
    http://www.reindeerauto.com
    Phone: 800-548-8330

Relotrans
    http://www.relotrans.com
    Phone: 978-358-2255

However, neither Avatar Relocation (the Atlas agent I work for) -- nor Atlas Van Lines --  recommends car carrier companies.

Furthermore, if you experience problems with a car carrier you select we won’t have any sway to help you.

I agree with your opinion of brokers whose services are often problematic. In fact, we wrote an article regarding internet household moving brokers which you can find here...

I’ll wrap this up by advising you that the above two companies are probably decent outfits who won’t take advantage of you.

Good luck and thanks again for your great question! smiley
