Your company lived up to its #3 rating as far as I'm concerned. Sound advice from Kelsey & another lady I talked to as far as the correct price or quote. She advised me to stay with the quote which averaged the price for the distance involved over the past month, for at least a week & by gosh in a week, I had a carrier at the advertised quote. Prior to this I'd been badgered by another company which had a similar quote but all three offers came in about 40% more & I was told that was the current market. I voted with my feet so to speak, & searched out your company. I had a very courteous driver in Chris with good communication throughout the 6 day period the vehicle saw the USA! Very glad to do business with you and would recommend to anyone interested.

I had an inoperable vehicle that I needed to be repaired. It's a classic, antique car and it was shipped across 2,500 miles, from Austin, Texas to Portland, Oregon, in eight days. I chose Bargain Auto Transport based on the ratings on the company. There were several reviews that recommended them as a trustworthy, reliable company. Their cost was in line with market and it was fairly priced for the service. The customer service rep also skewed me towards a less expensive option within their platform. The way my situation was handled was great. My brother received the car and the driver was able to meet him at the predetermined location. The only thing is that maybe they could add a GPS tracking system. But the driver who picked up and delivered the vehicle was excellent and the car arrived in perfect condition. There was no change in it.

I had a great experience shipping my car with Bargain Auto Transport. I found out they are actually a sister company of Sherpa Auto Transport so knowing this, I was confident I would get great service. I appreciate their transparency from the beginning and the great communication throughout the process. At first I wasn't sure about the bidding process but they explained how it works. Because I was flexible and wasn't on any shipping deadline, shipping with Bargain Auto Transport was perfect for me. They got me a great deal to ship my car from California to New Jersey and I didn't even have to wait long or raise my initial carrier fee before my car got accepted. I got a lot of calls and higher quotes from various auto transport companies and I am glad I chose a credible and trustworthy company like Bargain Auto Transport. I found great quality service for the lowest cost (a true Bargain!).

I worked with Felicia, Casey, and Quentin who were all helpful, informative, and friendly! They answered all my questions and facilitated communication with the carrier for me. From pickup to delivery, everything went smoothly. My car was safely delivered from California to New Jersey in 6 days travel time. I would absolutely recommend Bargain Auto Transport to friends and family and will use you them in the future should I ever need auto transport services again.

I used Bargain Auto Transport for a move from Michigan to Arizona. They got here in a very reasonable amount of time. I like the bid process, the transparency of this company and the absence of sales pressure. I went with them because of being able to know that I was paying them a fee for facilitating the move and then the bid for the driver was up to me to make was very appealing. The customer service rep was fantastic. The quality of their service was outstanding, particularly the driver. It was a bargain. I might’ve gotten a price that good with somebody else, but I wanted to deal with a company that I didn’t feel like was not gonna be here today, gone tomorrow.

Last month I arranged to have my parents’ car shipped across country as they were moving from Palm Desert, California to Charlotte, NC. I was a bit anxious with all the details involved in such a move, especially for seniors. I was contacted by the local company out in Calif that would be picking it up and could not have spoken to a nicer person who really put me at ease and assured me they would be there when they said they would and that they would contact me on their way. Sure enough all went as planned and the car arrived in good condition without a problem! It felt good to know they were on top of it and one less thing for me to be concerned about. I would highly recommend this company for anyone, they were definitely on top of their game!

Excellent customer service! Great communication with prompt updates. Professional & helpful staff. Best Bargain auto transport quote starting around $750 giving a 2 week window for pick up. I paid $800 for my Mazda 2 in July moving from Jax, FL to Oceanside, CA. Highly recommended!

I received a call asking if I was satisfied with your service. More then satisfied! Your staff was very helpful on giving me options. Also, the driver (Victor) handled my 68Vette with the utmost care and it arrived safe and sound. If I ever need your service again I will definitely be contacting you! Say hello to Victor. Thanks, Elias

They were right on track and so responsive!!! I really hate when businesses don’t answer or give you the feeling you aren’t in good hands. Bargain Auto made me feel like I was 100% taken care of. Definitely recommend this company. It’s the real deal.

The driver, Javier, from Skyline Auto Transport was courteous and professional. I am a skeptical person and was nervous about doing this. Javier was reassuring. My son received our car in LA and his experience went smoothly.

Moving the car was easy. Auto Transport secured an auto carrier for me. Both the service I received from Auto Transport and the carrier was timely and courteous. The car was shipped and received in a timely fashion, the carrier driver was friendly and accommodating. And the car arrived on time and in as good a condition as when it left the pick up location. I would not hesitate to use their services again.
