Good group of people. Shipped an 800hp twin turbo car for us and took great care in doing so. The communication is really good and they will text if they can't reach you by phone, I appreciate that since I'm always walking away from my phone and rarely call back numbers I don't know. Thanks guys!

Good price. The car was picked up on time. The car was delivered early. I was kept informed every step of the way. The driver's were a husband and wife team and very personable. They used a single car trailer and it was immaculate. I'm very pleased with the whole experience.

Chris handled our transport perfectly! Shipping a vintage collector VW bus from Southern California all the way to Key West Florida was no small task. He did EXACTLY what he said he was going to do, and was on time every time. Thanks Chris!
