The only shipping company I've ever had a positive experience with has been Executive Auto Shippers, which is Professional Auto Shippers now. Drivers have always been prompt and professional with no damage ever done to my cars. With other companies I've had damage done, cars show up a week late, drivers be unresponsive, etc. Since using PAS I've never had an issue. I'd highly recommend them.

Edit to add: The worst experience I ever had was a driver told me they got "stuck" in a city overnight waiting for a pickup. When they showed up two days later my car had 60 more miles than when it left the dealer, had dirty footprints all over both floor mats, and a parking ticket stub. I never found out where they took it.

If I can give any advice based on my experiences, be crazy. Make it obvious you're going to go over everything. I take dozens of pictures, spend at least 20 minutes going through the physical walkthrough of the car with the driver, ask if they will be taking my car off of the trailer for any other pickups or drop offs, and if so when and where. If I have a dealer send me the car then I ask them a day before hand to send me a fully detailed shipping ticket that they do by themselves to highlight any imperfections. I also have them send me picks of the odometer before going on the truck, picks of mirrors, rims, doors, etc. I also ask for detailed pics of the interior, bottoms of splitter, diffuser, basically anything that might go over looked but also highlights the fact that I'm going to be very difficult so don't try to take advantage or say something was already there.

my company uses reliable transport for all of my moves. i have not had any issues and they seem to have decent enough volumes that they can pick up within a 3 day window. It usually will take 3-5 business days for the vehicle to arrive. They use proper lifts that accommodate lower vehicle ride heights. https://reliable-carriers.com/

I haven't used other companies so that's all the experience I have had and our moving company brokers it with them.

Has anyone tried out or known any other reliable truck companies? I don't want to deal with brokers.

Thank you!

I used luxury auto shippers to transport enclosed over 2000 miles to San Diego. No issues on time
Very professional.

Thomas Sunday Transport, reliable, horseless carriage.

Whatever you do, don't use a broker/middle man.

Auto Transport Recommendations

Anyone have a carrier/person they can recommend to have a vehicle shipped? I am looking to purchase a vehicle in either Maryland or New Jersey and have it shipped to me in Texas. Nothing too crazy in terms of cost, but still well cared for in transport. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I bought my M3 in FL and they brought it to me in NC in less than a week. Open trailer for $600. They offered the cover trailer option for about $800. They collect your money until the car is getting picked up, no before. No deposits etc....

Trevino Transport just brought my m4 enclosed and did an excellent job. Appropriately priced.
