Enclosed car transporter!

If you've been looking for safe, enclosed, and economical transport for your car purchases or sales, motorcycles, atv's, boats, large body panels, engines, transmissions, etc. then I think I've found THE source!

I just shipped a vintage watercraft to a guy in Ohio from here in southern California. The transporter we used is John Magada (419)467-2097. Fantastic guy and he's towing an enclosed 50'x 8' triple axle trailer! I've never seen anything like it.

He can haul any car or truck, except dually's. He does a ton of motorcycle and watercraft hauling. He's got the inside of the trailer decked out with a remote control electric winch, so if the car/truck isn't driveable, he can sit in it, steer, and use the remote to load himself! The loading ramp is that entire back panel, so it's maybe 10" off the ground and 8'-9' long. Makes for some easy loading!

He's also got it set up so he can convert the interior to double decker to haul a second level of motorcyles, atv's, pwc's, etc.

He runs Ohio to California about once a month in the Summer and once every 6 weeks in the winter, but he can go anywhere.

I highly recommend him!

American Auto Transport is also pretty good if anyone is interested in enclosed auto transport.

Very cool info thanks for sharing. I have always used the FedEx transporter. I've had the same Czech gentlemen almost every time. They are on the top of their game to say the least. Never any problems. Even sat around for three while the S65 was getting a battery replaced!
