I just purchased a CTS-V, but need to get it shipped all the way across the country. Can anyone recommend a reliable closed trasport that won't break the bank?

If you've got the time, it might be cheaper to buy a one-way ticket and gas home. PM Benzilla, he had his Phaeton shipped from Cali.

They run their own fleet instead of contracting out the transit work, and their prices are among the best. Go with them.

Thanks guys. I would love to drive it home, but it's 2800 miles. That would add 40% more miles to the vehicle ;)

I've got a quote for DAS. Thanks.

Whoever you get, don't go with "Car on a truck" They were supposed to ship mine, and never got back with me until almost a month later when I asked for my money back. to me, all shipping companies are scum now, even with enclosed transporters, you have to worry about the drivers, mine f***ed me over.

I've used them before....staight forward, affordable and were very accomodating.

Although when I bought my V, I drove it from Ohio to FL, awesome experience....

When we sold our Chevelle, the lady buying it needed to have it shipped and chose Passport Transport (they're with Fedex). They use high quality closed carriers, and were awesome guys.

We ended up meeting a husband & wife team who basically drive their truck all around the country, and came to pick the Chevelle up later at night. They were the nicest people ever, made sure all the forms were filled out right and the car not damaged, put plastic on the seat & steering wheel, and loaded it with care. Even let us check out the sleeper cab of their truck, peak at the other cars on board, etc.

Of course, they were the only one we've dealt with, but for being a closed carrier with top notch service, the pricing is right in line with a lot of other transporters, or at least was back then.

So my vote goes to:

http://passport.fedex.com/

Thanks, Guys. I ended up going with DAS. They were they only ones that would guarantee a pickup date. All the others wanted to give me a 3-5 day 'window'. I'm shipping it enclosed, expedited.

Sounds good. I've heard good things about them too, especially being one of the largest and most used (thanks to things like Ebay). Hope it goes well:thumbsup:

DAS is what I'm using to have my STS Shipped. Quoted $550 from South FL to North GA.

I hope so, too. When it gets picked up, the seller is going to record the loading of the vehicle with a camcorder so it's documented. I think it should be fine. Can't wait until it's in my driveway :bouncy:

I wish mine was that cheap. It's 2800 miles for my car to travel...with all the options I selected it's $2k. :crybaby:
