Reliable Car Movers from Ohio to Califronia to 2007 CLS

Hi

My brother is law is selling me is 2007 CLS. I need some reliable movers to move the car from Ohio to California. Anyone have any recc'd. The last two cars that I moved from the midwest to CA came in really dinged up. Definately don't want to use them. Thanks!

GOOGLE is your friend. Find someone who will ship the car in an enclosed carrier. That's the only way you can ensure it suffers no damage from road rash, etc.

Take a look at the back lot at the Pebble Beach Concours De'Elegance. See all the big orange trucks with Reliable written on them? I would hazard a guess if they can shuttle million dollar rigs then your Merc will not suffer at their hands.

Also, Wayne Carrini from Chasing Classic Cars used a service called Precious Metal if I recall.

Thanks. There is lots on Google and transportreviews. I was disappointment after using transport reviews last time. So I wanted to know if people had any personal reccomendations.

The price for good shipper can give you nice vacations. Can't you take 3 days off and just pick it up yourself?
I've been buying cars long distance for years and it was always very pleasant trip.
I am self-employed so taking time off is easy
I've been part time hauler for some time and IMHO the reviews of the company is just small part of the story. It comes to the driver how the car is taken care about.
