I called Bargain and started to engage with them. I was happy with the experience, so I kept going. The cost went up 50 from what I was initially quoted but the service was very good.

I'm in the military and this was my 11th move. I've shipped an auto at least half that many times. This was by far the best experience I've had. A Bargain Auto rep called me and provided a quick accurate quote. The actual cost was exactly what I was quoted. Driver showed up on time, was very professional and took good care of my antique vehicle. It arrived at the destination in perfect condition. Everything was delivered as advertised and promised. I will definitely use them for my next move.

Again, thanks for choosing Sherpa Auto Transport. We look forward to assisting you again in the future!
They talked me through the process, and were very patient and knowledgeable. There were no hidden fees or strange insurance costs. They told me what to expect and I got what they promised. The price was slightly more expensive than my lowest bid from another company but significantly less expensive than the highest bid from a separate company. Definitely legitimate and high quality work. I was able to make an even swap of 2 different vehicles from coast to coast in a very timely and affordable manner. I was able to work with this company and their sister company Sherpa to get it done.

The rep of Bargain Auto Transport explained everything up-front. The costs were exactly what he said. He said that it wouldn't change, unlike a lot of other quotes I got where they quoted me way less, but then there were fees later on. It was accepted by a company within five days. It was really smooth. I really enjoyed the detail that they took at the pickup and the drop-off. I took pictures like they said. But they went way further into more detail, detailing little dings and scratches that I really didn’t even care about or even noticed myself. But they annotated all of it and that was impressive on that part.
As the pickup goes, it was quick and easy. Everything was digital, so it was really fast. No crazy paperwork. I emailed everything right on the spot. So even as the representative did everything, it was right there on my phone, I saw it all. Same with the drop-off, same stuff, went over the scratches and stuff, signed paperwork right there digitally, boom it was right in my email. Both the pickup and the drop-off were less than 15 minutes. So it definitely saved me a lot of time. Even the vehicle, I was concerned about how much fuel needed to be in it and they said, “Don't worry about it.” They didn't even drive it more than a quarter-mile. It was dropped off exactly how it was picked up. Everything was right on. I was pretty pleased with everything.

My husband was really concerned about what condition the car would be in or if it would be driven, but he was very pleased with Bargain Auto. We liked the gentleman that we worked with. His name was Charlie and he was very informative. He told my hushand what all he was doing and why he was doing it. I took pictures of him and the carrier leaving with our car on it. Then our daughter called us as soon as it got there and she said Charlie was real nice to her. So it was a wonderful experience. We wish we would have done it sooner. We'd use them again in a heartbeat.

Once the price was established, the car was picked up and delivered across the country in less that 3 days. Communication and service from the driver was great. Highly recommend these guys- request N & U trucking if you can. They are amazing.

Honestly, I couldn’t be happier with the job you all did and I'm so glad I found you guys. Your communication was spot on throughout, and I found your driver Givi to be timely, thorough, fast, hard-working, and completely trustworthy. Further, your overall price was exactly $500 below my other quote. I give you guys a 10. Thanks so much for everything.

My father gave my son his truck. My father lives in Texas and I live in Indiana. I wasn't going to fly down there and drive it back with COVID hanging around, so I decided to transport it. I looked into four companies and Bargain Auto Transport was more reputable. They were professional, courteous, and delivered on what they were communicating. It was a great experience. The cost was reasonable too.
The driver was great. He met my parents to pick up the vehicle. They all inspected the vehicle, did the paperwork and took pictures. Then through the week, he stayed in touch with me. He even had to call me at one point because his truck broke down and asked if I needed alternatives to get it and I told him to not worry about it because I was in no hurry. When he was having his truck worked on, he sent me pictures of his truck and trailer, the mechanic shop, and showing that my vehicle was still in the same spot it was loaded in. So even though he was having his own challenges, he stayed in touch and delivered it when he said he was going to deliver it. Everything worked out perfectly. He picked it up on Saturday and he had it here on Thursday night. With his truck breaking down, it cost him a day and a half.
I don't usually leave reviews for anything but I know Bargain is a newer company so I wanted to help get the word out. I tried them to move my 1961 MG Midget in an enclosed transport from Colorado to California. Due to the historical value of the car, I was naturally nervous choosing any transport company. Bargain's price was very good and the lowest I found, as long as I was flexible in my pickup window. My initial bid was accepted by a driver and 2 days later, my car was here! They were very good about keeping me updated about finding me a driver, either emailing or calling me. When the car arrived, the driver was very courteous and even got here sooner than he had planned at my request. I had no issues at all and would totally recommend them to anyone. If your pickup window is flexible, I don't think their prices can be beat. Hope this helps someone.
I received quotes from shipping companies and Bargain was the cheapest one so that's the one I decided to go with. I had a really pleasant experience. I didn't have a certain timeline so I was a little more flexible on when I could ship my cars. Once a week, we would get on the phone with customer service and discuss my bid. It was super easy. I was always in the loop and I really appreciated that. I could track the car the entire time and there was no damage to it when it arrived.
When considering to transport your car, two is a lot to ship. I didn't have a timeline for either one and I just needed the car somewhere eventually. One thing to take into consideration with Budget is the timeline on when you would need your car. If you need a little bit of structure on when your car is going to be at the destination, it might be a little difficult.
They informed me of what they do and their role in the whole process. Communication was open from acquiring the bid and any questions that I may have, I could reach out.

With our auto transport experts beside you every step of the way, Bargain customers can feel confident that they will know the status of their shipment throughout the whole shipment process.

I had a pickup transported from North Dakota to North Carolina. Bargain transport found a driver right after the first call for a quote and my pickup was delivered in perfect shape in less than 2 weeks.
