Shipping a car from San Francisco to DC

Hi all,

I would like to ship my W111 Coupe back from Sans Francisco CA to Washington DC at the end of my trip. The car is operational and does not require any special treatment. What would be my best option, who is doing a good job for a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance

I shipped my 280 from Denver to San Diego, in a covered truck, for a little under $500. I don't know if that's a good rule of thumb ($500 for 1200 miles), but I did a general internet search and got a list of carriers (and took the cheapest).
