I've used Intercity a number of times and they are fantastic. I think it was about $1200 from LA to Cleveland and about $800 from Long Island to Cleveland, so you're probably looking at around $1000. They are great, though. They will be super busy in a few weeks because they do all the Barrett Jackson stuff.

I wouldn't ask a MB dealer for anything, that would be insanity.

I get a double-tall vanilla latte every time I'm at Nordstrom. Their coffee is much better than Starbucks!

A to Z Auto Shipping 888-404-4420 atozauto.com $950

AA Transport 888-747-7227 www.aa-auto.com rush $895 slow $745

National Auto Transporter 888-628-2886 www.auto-transpoter.com $895

A-AAA Auto Transport, Inc. 888-821-9645 www.autocarmover.com $850



I chose National Auto Transporter. They're gonna pick up my car this Friday, and it will take avg. 6 days. Also, I chose the option picking my car at one of their 3 terminals in St. Louis downtown.

Speaking of DAS, the website suggested $540 initially...so I called the operator and he offered $1,199. So I asked him I saw half price on the interent and he said they have some problem in their website. Since then their website was down for few hours.

I will keep update the progress. Wish it could be a good reference to anybody who needs to ship their whips in the future.
Thanks for that info... You ARE going to like STL!!
