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 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 needed to transport a car because my 93 year old mother decided to stop driving. She is in Florida. I live in Tennessee, and it made more sense for me to have the car shipped up here and sell it than to go down there and try to sell it out of her place. Bargain Auto, as well as another outfit that they're associated with, was highly reviewed on a review site. I got bombarded with calls, but I decided to go with Bargain Auto and it went well. I'd use them again. My experience with the subcontractor who transported it up was really good. They were accommodating in the pickup and delivery process. I just got lucky I picked a good service. Bargain Auto gave what they promised, and they assigned the job to somebody who was reputable, on time and communicative.
Very smooth operation with no problems. The driver was very polite as well as punctual. All in all, a pleasant experience. The car was in perfect condition when it arrived. I'd use this company again.
I bought a car in another state and Bargain Auto Transport transported it from Ohio to Virginia. I liked their responsiveness and price so I went with them. The final cost was exactly as I was quoted. Their reps had some suggestions about how we had posted the ad, so I took them up on their suggestions, and I got it delivered in the time that we wanted. The condition of my vehicle was good, just as I had expected. The delivery driver gave me his phone number, and he answered his phone and my questions during the whole process. Everything went exactly like they said it would. I would use them again.
I needed to get my car to Idaho because I travel there a lot. I have employees there. Bargain Auto Transport has probate and they were reputable. I found the right solution so I decided to go with them. Their cost was too high, but I got done what I needed to get done. I would always accept the lower price, but I don't want a lower service. So far, the vehicle arrived and one of their people called me the other day. I was happy with the end result. Everything went very good with my Bargain Auto Transport experience.
We were moving a family member out to live with us in Michigan and we needed to move her car. Although Bargain Auto wasn't the least expensive option, it was the least expensive that fit within our delivery window. If I was willing to wait much longer to have the car picked up and be without the vehicle for a longer time, we may have gone with somebody else that was cheaper. But given the window we needed it and the use of it needing to be done, Bargain Auto was the best choice for us. Our experience went fine and the whole process from pick up to delivery was completed within a week.
