I just bought my first Mercedes, a pristine 1998 SL 500 with only 51,000 miles. I need to ship it from Scottsdale to Seattle. Does anyone know if there is a way to deal directly with a shipper rather than through a broker? I'm not necessarily looking for a way to reduce the cost, although that would be ok too. From my conversation with many brokers, their quotes are 'estimates' only or are subject to the availability of a driver to make the transport for the quoted price.
Enclosed transport estimates for this trip range from about $1,100 to about $1,450. I'm less worried about the extra $350 than I am that the extra money actually buys something.
I would appreciate suggestions on shippers or brokers based on recent experience.
Thanks to all.
