After reading the previous thread about "Bad transport company", that messed up on a member car. I was wondering is there a Transport company that would give quality service, and what should we look for in said company? I live in Chicago and some good deals are found miles away (vendors here) any advice would help. Oh, how much for additional Insurance?

These are the only guys I use.
They wear microfiber suits when near the cars.
They're trucks are nicer than most people's homes!

Yup these guys are great. I've heard good things about Horseless Carriage too.

I had Horseless Carriage transport my 96 Grandsport when we moved and it arrived safe and sound. The one downfall on the ordeal was the car had to sit in Detroit for a week to get another ride down to Indiana. This was the moving companies fault though.

I believe that all of the concept and protype cars (some essentially priceless) get moved around by 'Reliable Carriers' around here at the tech center. I see the Semi's all the time loading and unloading cars under cover. They are big orange enclosed trailers with the big car lifts on the back like a nascar trailer.

Thats my intention... I'm counting on the collective knowledge here as a starting point. Alot of members have good experience with certain companies and people like myself are seeking this information out. First hand experience always help. Some pass the excellent deals out there because of the distance factor and guys like me want the "word of mouth" also. Some of the site vendors/dealers should also chime in since they have good deals too and first hand experience. They can probably & should recommend certain transport companies to buyers. I thought this was the gravy part of the deal. Posting the links helps too.

They are truly one of the best, I have used them for several antique Corvettes. Very good price and service that will exceed your expectations.
