Posted by: Scott S Aug 13 2019, 11:59 AM

Hi All -
I need to ship a car from Ocala Fl to basically Boulder, CO. Car is fully driveable. Needs to go enclosed due to old weather seals and cannot risk damaging the interior if there should be rain/wet

Trying to keep budget in check as much as possible as well.

Any recommendations?

Thanks a million -
Scott S

Reliable and Pilot are mainstays of the auto industry for prototypes, test vehicles, and high dollar show cars. They know what they are doing and charge accordingly.

Check with them first.

Budget route though brokers can be dicey. There are good ones, and there are bad. I'm not educated enough on how to tell the difference.

I have used Reliable, Swift, Pilot, Intercity, Passport, and others. I have been the happiest with Reliable. The quality has been the most consistent, and the loads are on their trucks. I would avoid brokers (Montway is one that comes to mind), as you may have surprises. I sold a car this spring, buyer booked, enclosed, an open trailer arrived.

Only downside for Reliable, might be cost.

Lastly, the next few weeks could also be rough as every truck in the country (not literally, but...) will be in California for Monterrey car week.

Have used Reliable and Passport many times. Lately I've used Passport as they've been a little less $$ than Reliable. Usually go with the one who can pick up the quickest...
