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 was moving a 2001 Porsche Boxster to Florida. I called one company at first but ended up with Bargain Auto Transport instead because of the price and how the whole thing was handled excellently like with the CS rep that helped me. The move was for 1,100 miles and Bargain Auto pretty much communicated with me throughout the process. It didn’t take long at all so I didn’t really need much information.
The transport was two days at most. I was surprised. They called me as soon as I called the company. I had given them a window of time when they were picking up the car so that I could get it at a good price. They picked up the car and it was really quick after. The man that picked up the car relieved a lot of my fears. He got it up there with no problem at all. I've never done this before so it was kinda scary for me and it's a car I really like. He took really good care of it. It was all excellent and I don’t think they could have done a better job. The car was perfect too when it arrived.
I have a car that I needed to send from California to Georgia. My daughter is going to college there, so we needed to get the car over to her. I was talking to Sherpa and impressed but the price was higher than we could afford. And so, I asked if they had recommendations and they mentioned Bargain Auto Transport. They’re their sister company. All along I was really impressed with Sherpa and then equally impressed with Bargain Auto Transport and the whole process. They were really professional, and we would definitely use them again and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needed to transport a car.
Bargain kept me adequately informed each day how things were going or during the course of the auction, and then when the day came where they identified somebody to ship the car. They really provided helpful guidance to me. So, I felt like we were in good hands. I felt well-prepared. There was one little glitch that they also handled and resolved. The trucking company had texted me that they needed cash upon delivery, and that wasn’t the arrangement that I had with Bargain Auto Transport. It was certified check. They were able to resolve it so that we could give him the certified check. I had a family member on the east coast to pick up the car, and they said everything was great and the car transport seemed fine.

I was coming down to Florida for 3 months. For years, my husband and I have been doing that. He passed away now. We have so many grandchildren and there were always some of them in college and needed to drive our cars down and fly back. They got jobs and it’s harder for them to get away and I didn’t wanna put anybody out. I thought of another way I could get the car down in Florida and that was when one of my sons came up with the idea of transporting it. I talked to 2 different transport services and Bargain Auto was the one that called me back and gave me information that would help me to make decisions. They weren’t pushy. They gave me 2 days and called me back. By that time, I was ready to use a group who would take my car down.
The one thing I was concerned about was the size of the truck that Bargain Auto was going to put my car on. I live in a condo and wondered if the roads here are wide enough to get a big truck like that in. But that wasn’t a problem at all. The guy collecting cars for the truck that was going came right on the day and the time he said he would be there. He called me a half hour ahead of time and said he would be there. He had papers to give to me. The pick-up happened very fast and easy, and I felt very comfortable about him taking my car. I’d never done anything like that before but Bargain Auto made it very simple for me.

When we bought a new car, we wanted to give our old car, the 2011 Honda CR-V, to our daughter out in Portland, Oregon, 3,000 miles away. We looked at five transport companies and Bargain Auto Transport's persistence got us to use them. I was really nervous about it and contacted a local trucking company here. The fellow said to me to make a choice and get on with it. The very next day, the rep called and she was very professional and confident. My husband and I were both in the car when the call came in and my husband said that we needed to go with them. I'm not sorry about how it worked out. They were a really excellent brokering company for us. I spoke with many others at Bargain and they were all very nice.
However, if we had to do it all over again, we would do a covered. We chose November to transport the vehicle and it went through a snowstorm. It was the last one to be put on the truck and at the very end, Kristen said that when the car arrived, it was really dirty. It also needed $2,500 worth of work. But so far, there was not a dent or scratch on the car and everything else seemed to be in really good order. Bargain is a great company, but make sure that the car isn't on an open transport this time of year, that it is covered.
I decided to go with Bargain because of the price and everything was fine. The vehicle was fine when they picked up and it was excellent the way it was sent. You don’t know the difference.
Bargain Auto Transport had the best rate. Also, I read the reviews and they are every good. I had an excellent experience working with Bargain. The best part about it was that on the bill of lading, they checked for all scratches and dents and had the dealership sign it before they took the vehicle, which was very important to me. And then, the car was delivered on time and the driver was excellent. He notified me when he was on the way. The transport took a day and a half. Everything went perfect. The cost was very good. If I ever have to transport a car again, I will go with Bargain. I would recommend them.
I looked at six different companies. I talked with the service guy with Sherpa. I wanted a better price and so he mentioned their sister company, Bargain. I was skeptical, but they proved that I shouldn't have been like that. The customer service representative did a very good job and kept me informed. When I called to find out something, they had the answers. The vehicle was delivered to my son's house and he seemed to be very pleased with it. There were just a lot of bugs on it because it was apparently on the top in the front. I was surprised at how smooth it went. The vehicle got there sooner than we were expecting. I never transported a car like this before, so I thought it was high. But then getting quotes from other companies, I found out or felt like it was very reasonable.
We moved and had to get our car across state from New Mexico to Southern California. Bargain Auto Transport came in with the most competitive price among other transport companies. The people that I spoke with were great and the car came at a shorter timeframe than expected. It was a very painless process and I would use them again.
I bought another vehicle the transport worked out great with Bargain Auto Transport. They were good and were very courteous.
Thanks for the great review, Bob! Bargain Auto Transport prides itself on putting the customer first, from pricing decisions to frequent communication, and it's great to hear that you experienced this for yourself when we worked together. Thanks again for working with us. We look forward to partnering with you to ship a car again in the future!
