Our experience with Montway was fine. There were a lot of people out there that were cheaper, but other than that, it was good. Montway's representatives did very well and they were good about getting back to us. I was supposed to actually agree to the contract, and I did but it didn't look like it had gone through. They were Johnny-on-the-spot and did a good job. I particularly liked the guy who picked up our car. I said that there's a Walmart nearby and that it'll be a lot easier for him. He did a really great job and he spent some time explaining things to us.

We are very happy to hear that your transport went well, Sue. Thank you for your kind words, we will be sure to pass them on to Cruz Brother's Transport.

Original review: Oct. 16, 2020

We had three cars to move but only two drivers. The delivery was a bit of a problem in that the cars were delivered to my daughter's house because we had not arrived in the state. They delivered them to my daughter's account. She unwittingly signed the bill of lading saying that there was no damage, but there was some. So, I contacted Montway, and they said, "Sorry. The bill of lading, the delivery confirmation was signed. Therefore, too bad, you can't do anything about a claim," which was unreasonable and unfair. Apparently, the claim has to be with the independent contractor that drove the truck and not with Montway. However, they could have intervened. If they contracted with this driver, they could have done something other than just tell me to try to figure it out myself. They picked the car up and dropped it off on time. It's just that there was damage to the car that they won't take care of.

The lady from Montway was really helpful. She got a quote very fast. We had other quotes and she took care of matching whatever price we needed. We also looked at their reviews online and they had good ones so we went with them. The driver was very fast and professional and the quote was very accurate. Everything was good.

Thank you for the excellent review, Grace. We appreciate you choosing Montway for your transport needs. We'll be sure to let Kyra know that she did an excellent job servicing your order. Looking forward to assisting again in the future.

My daughter moved from New York to California. Also, we were going to move in January so I looked into a number of transport companies. I wasn't happy with the answers I got from other companies. And compared to others I had checked out, Montway's quote was in line. It wasn't the highest, it wasn't the lowest.

The rep I spoke with was very friendly, attentive to what I needed, and answered my questions. The delivery went very smoothly. The driver kept in contact with us constantly prior to picking the car up and prior to dropping it off. He was very helpful as far as working out where he was gonna be picking it up and dropping it off. He got there way ahead of when he was supposed to. Given another chance, I would definitely give Montway a callback.

The car I bought was in Pennsylvania and I had to move it to Detroit. Everything was really good with Montway. The only problem I had was with their website. I originally put the wrong ZIP code in and it was a real hassle to change it. I was irritated because I spent an hour on the computer trying to change my code and I still wasn’t able to do it. At that point, I was ready to go with another company. Then, I booked it over the phone. The car arrived in good condition.

Thank you for the review, Ken. We're sorry to hear about the issues with the website. We'll make sure this is reported to our development team.

I had a car in my home in North Carolina that needed to be transported to Vermont. I was looking for somebody to transport it other than me taking it and putting it on a trailer. Montway was the second company I looked at and they were the only ones that got back to me. The rep was great. He took the time to list everything that we needed and what was gonna to be done. It was straightforward. Within three days, they were there to pick it up so it was pretty quick. However, the cost was a little bit more than what they quoted me and they did not communicate during the transport. I got an email was after the fact that it was already delivered. Other than those, it worked out real well with Montway. They found somebody to do the transport and the guy that did the transportation was wonderful.

I moved from Hawaii to South Carolina so I had my car shipped. The quote I got from Montway was good. The transport took about a month. The driver drove from west to east so the car was dirty but it wasn't damaged. I can live with that. Montway has good service. I was not disappointed at all.

I was relocating from North Carolina to Texas and Montway's reps were incredibly pleasant. The quote was around what I had expected and budgeted for and it was 100% accurate. Also, the vehicle's condition was perfect on the delivery. Everything looked like it did when I left the vehicle to be transported. The driver was quite friendly. He had a delay but he kept me informed during the process.

We appreciate the review, Nicole. Glad we could provide great service. We'll be sure to let the driver know they provided great communication. Have a great day!

I was moving across the country and I wanted my car with me. I googled and got a quote from two places. Montway was one of them. I wanted to fill out the trunk with stuff and they could accommodate that so I went with them instead of the other company and got a quote. Everything was through the chat window in the browser. It was no wait and they answered all the questions quick and prompt. They arrived before I expected the car to come. I don't see any scratches on the car and the quote was spot-on. It didn't vary at all. It might have been a bit pricey than the other companies but on the other hand, I didn't have to worry about it. They did. If I have a friend that needs to move the car, I would say that they should go with Montway.

Montway is reliable, dependable, and very affordable. I had my car transported from Texas to Georgia. I looked into five transport companies and researched the prices. Montway was the cheaper one. I did an online process to start. They called right away to give a quote and the online quote I got was exactly the same. Then I ended up filling everything by phone. Once they did the deposit, they set up a transport service five days later. After that, it went pretty quickly.

The drivers took detailed pictures. It was a map of my car detailing anything they saw and they gave me those. They were able to get my car within one day of my anticipated date. The whole process took seven days from me booking the online appointment to finishing up everything. The car arrived with no issue.

We are thrilled to hear that everything went smoothly throughout the process, Ericka. Thank you so much for your kind words.

Original review: Oct. 12, 2020

We were moving and we had an extra vehicle and not enough drivers. I received quotes from about a dozen transport companies. The quotes went as high as $2,500 and there were quotes as low as $600. We started to do the research and looked at some of those. The high ones were far too high and with the low ones, there were a lot of additional fees that weren't upfront that might come into the cost at the end. Montway was very reasonable and they were upfront. Also, their reviews were the best when I was looking for a nice balance between the cost and the quality of service. Their rep and I talked about what I needed and they made the arrangements. They had a driver arranged within 36 hours and what they quoted was what we paid.

We had arranged for the driver to come for the pick up and I was supposed to meet him but I ended up in the hospital with surgery. The driver reached out and said he was coming. I said I was in the hospital and he was very sympathetic. I told him he was gonna meet my wife and my son. The driver came to the parking lot in the church by our house and he was very professional and helpful. My wife felt extremely at ease with him. He loaded up the vehicle and went on his way.

It only took about three days to get from New Jersey to its destination, my parents' house in Iowa. He called me at different stages of the trip and kept me abreast of what was going on, where he was, and how close he was gonna be to dropping it off. My folks live in a small town off the interstate. They parked on one of the main roads in town and then took the vehicle up and brought it down to my parents. From stopping the car, taking the vehicle off, driving to my parents' house, walking up to my parents, and then knocking, he gave me a step-by-step through the whole process. It was quite amusing.

I got to hear the whole interaction when he was dropping off the car and when the last payment was made. That was very good. My parents are older and they were quite happy with the whole process. The driver was a really good guy and everybody who had any interactions with him said he was a good guy. My phone interactions were fantastic and it was delivered on time, very safely, and securely. We had an excellent experience. I have another car that's out in New Jersey and at some point, we're going to arrange for the delivery with Montway. We're pretty excited about that.

Thank you for the wonderful review, Scott. We encourage all customers to do their research. Our industry is very niche and has a wide range of variables to consider. We do our best and use a wide range of technology and industry knowledge to provide a fair and accurate quote. We also pride ourselves on working with the most professional drivers out there. So we're happy to hear that the driver provided great service. If there is anything else we can help with, please let us know. Have a great one!

Original review: Oct. 12, 2020

I looked at 3 or 4 companies. Montway wasn't the cheapest nor highest but the reviews online were good and reliable. The driver was awesome. He picked the car up from my family in Florida and they said he was a real nice guy. He called a day and a half later and said, "I'm a couple hours outside of Philly. Where can I meet you? At this address, right?" I said, "The address is right but I'm gonna be home not at least 'til tomorrow night, if not, the next day." He said it was not a problem, that he'd wait around at the local truck stop or he'd see if he could drop off another car or pick one up in the area. He also told me to let him know when I was ready and he'd come meet me.

The guy was super nice. I felt bad that he had to wait around 'cause time is money in that business. He had to spend the extra night at a truck stop and lost out on a day's money where he could have been making another drop-off or pickup. One thing that Montway dropped the ball on is they gave me a 3 to 5-day window, not a 2-day window. Other than that, everything went good.

Montway Auto Transport response

Hello Chadwick, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're happy to hear the driver provided great service. Please note that while Montway does work with the drivers in scheduling, it is ultimately the final decision of the driver when it comes to planning their route. The driver informed Montway that their travel time would be around 3-5 days. We'll be sure to let the driver know that overall they did a great job and also work with them on optimizing their travel schedule. We'd love the opportunity to discuss this further and kindly ask that the reviewer send us an email to feedback@montway.com. Have a great day!

Original review: Oct. 11, 2020

The communication with Montway was a little bit spotty at first. I had to transport my father's car from Florida to Rhode Island and the first agent I spoke to didn't explain everything to me so I was surprised by a few things. For one, they're a broker and they deal with local companies all over. I didn't know that. The other thing was the method of payment and the cancellation policy weren't explained to me upfront. I didn't feel like the first agent I spoke to gave me good information. He was more anxious to book it.

The particular company who we booked had to cancel because they had an issue with their truck. They couldn't do it in the timeframe that I needed it done. I did speak to a supervisor and the supervisor was excellent. He took charge of it and explained. I've already called him about the lack of information with the first conversation then I spoke to him a second time about the canceled truck and what to do from there. He found another trucking company and they were able to get there exactly when I wanted them to. The supervisor was very communicative which I appreciated. The trucker that they hired was excellent. I couldn't have asked for any more from this trucker.

I would recommend Montway because in the end, it all worked out. I was very happy with the trucker and with the supervisor who jumped in and helped me. However, I would put a caveat that people need to make sure that the agent they speak to definitely gives them all the information they need. They gotta make sure that they ask a lot of questions about payment and scheduling. Even if the agent doesn’t tell them, they have to know enough to ask. It was a stressful time with my dad dying and it would have been nice if it was less effort and I had the information correctly. I had to call back a bunch of times then the first trucker canceled. I felt like it was more work than needed to be done at that time. If I wasn’t under so much stress from my dad dying, maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad.

Betsey, we are sorry to hear that you felt your booking agent was not the most informative, but we are glad to hear that Pierre stepped in to make this right. Thank you so much for your kind review.

I shipped my SUV from Atlanta to Texas. It was put on the back on the lower part of the truck and I questioned why it was in the back but the driver assured me that nothing would happen to my car. My car was damaged. It was delivered with the luggage rack all smashed in on both sides. I called Montway and they told me that I would have to go through the company but I don't know who was the broker they used to get my car. There was nothing they can do about it and I will have to file a claim through my insurance company.

I went with Montway because of the reviews and the price but they raised the price at the end. The driver was great though. He was very helpful, very informative and stayed in contact the entire time. He communicated really well. Because the truck was loaded, the pickup took a little bit longer by an hour. The transport took five days and I would use the service again.

I needed to have the car transported to where I live which is just an hour away. I was about to have surgery and I wanted to make sure the car was in my driveway. Montway was the cheapest so I went with them. There was a little confusion though. They have to get on board with what's going in the company and finding out where they gotta go, pick up the car and drop it off. That was the only mix-up we had. The cost was good. I like the way they split it up ‘cause that helps a lot. Overall, the experience was good. The vehicle arrived in perfect condition.

I bought a ’67 Camaro and had to transport it from Goodrich, Michigan to Plano, Texas. I did an online search for transport companies and requested a quote from Montway. I was contacted by one of their CSRs and she was awesome. She gave me a way to contact her and she kept in touch with me throughout the process. She took ownership of the deal. I chose to go with them because of her customer service.

The quote they gave was very competitive. They weren't the lowest but they were not the highest. And their website was simple and efficient to work with. The transport took two days and the car was a little dusty when it was delivered but it was fine. It was in an enclosed trailer and the driver had another car behind it that he had to drop in North Texas so he stopped there first. He communicated with me the whole process - when he was leaving to go pick up the car, the estimated time, allowed me to give that time to the dealer that had the car, when he got on the road, where he was gonna stay the night, and what time he expected to be in Texas. The customer service from Montway was above what I expected. They gave very personal service and they interacted as if that vehicle belongs to them personally.

Thanks for the awesome review, Jack! Glad we could provide top-notch service for your Camaro. Everyone's car has a story and it's important to us that it's treated with care. If we can help with anything else just let us know!

Everything went pretty smoothly. It took maybe a week to get Montway to commit but once they found a driver for the vehicle, it was just a couple of days. The only thing was once I booked and they were finally going to pick up the car, the price was maybe $50 more than they quoted. I don't know how that happened, but they changed the price from the online price.

I was happy with Montway. There were no glitches from pickup to delivery. They did the transport from California to Florida in 3 days and it went great. They wouldn't come into my street for the delivery because it was too narrow so they kinda stopped at the McDonald's around the corner and I went out and picked it up. The cost went up slightly because I had a bunch of luggage in the car. They said that they had to charge for the weight of the luggage a couple hundred bucks.

Montway Auto Transport response

Hello Steve, thanks for the review. Happy to hear most everything went well. We reached out to the customer to clarify the luggage policy and upon audit, decided it would be in the best interest of the customer to compensate for the inconvenience. Truck drivers have very tight restrictions when it comes to luggage in the vehicle and it's important that we clarify the reasoning behind our strict terms. If the customer has any other questions or concerns, please contact us at feedback@montway.com.

I bought a vehicle. It was just the vehicle I was looking for and it was across the country. I liked everything on Montway's website and how the website worked. It was pretty easy. I went with them for the transport of the vehicle. The quote was more than what I wanted to pay, but it is what it is and it was fair. Also, the driver was great and the pick up time was better than my expectations. I was really pleased with how everything transpired. I’d use them again in a heartbeat if I need to.

I have used Montway twice. The last one took four days. The only problem I had was that I paid for a set pick-up time and day. It wasn't until like two hours before that it was actually picked up that I had any communications from them, as opposed to me having to call them and try to figure out where they were at.

Montway has addressed my concerns and I am pleased to change my review from four to five stars. I would use them again for auto transport.

Original review: Oct. 8, 2020

My husband and I have a son who is attending college in Michigan, and we live in California. We shipped the car out there so that he would have some transportation. We looked at at least five transport companies. We made arrangements to go with another company, but we weren't happy with where it was going. I found Montway to be, at the outset, much more professional and responsive. From the time I made my initial call until I was contacted by the driver was a matter of several hours, as opposed to having to reach out to the other one and not getting a phone call back. The car was picked up that night because they were in the area.

Kyra, the first person I spoke with, was terrific. However, there was some miscommunication about how long delivery would take. Her words to me were that the transport company had five to seven days to deliver the car, when what she really should have said was it's approximately five to seven days because it took them 12 or 13 days. And that was very different than what we had expected. When I followed up with the delivery estimate, and that miscommunication, the first person I spoke with was absolutely not well-equipped to handle customer issues. I found him very difficult to understand and he just kept repeating the same thing. I then asked to speak to a supervisor. Layla called me back and she was much more helpful. But she told me that she would look into some sort of compensation for our troubles and would call me back, but she never called me back.

Montway's prices were reasonable, and the quote was accurate. They were much easier to work with and I didn't feel like I got the runaround on getting everything set up. They were professional but needs to be sure they understood the specifics of the delivery times.

Montway Auto Transport response

We appreciate the review, Jennifer. We're glad everything worked out well but we do apologize for the miscommunication regarding timing. Communication is incredibly important and this is a good example of how a few misspoken words can lead to a lot of headaches. Feedback such as yours is how we continue to improve our processes and services so we can stay the top-rated company in our industry.

We have audited the order and reached out to the customer to provide compensation for the communication issues. If the customer has any additional feedback or questions, please contact us at feedback@montway.com.

I looked at 3 companies and Montway was the one that got to me fastest. There were a few other competing quotes that were a bit cheaper but they didn't get back to me or I would send emails and calls and I would get nothing back. Montway answered all of my questions and I was on my way within a matter of 5 to 10 minutes setting up the pickup in LA. They transported a personal vehicle to New York in 9 days. The estimated time was a week and it took a bit longer than that but it wasn't that much of a big deal. The quote was spot on and everything went smoothly. The experience was painless. I was always in contact with Montway or my driver. I never felt like there was any funny business going on.

I bought a car in New York and wanted it in Tucson, Arizona. Montway was able to do the service when I wanted it and their price was very reasonable. Their rep was very knowledgeable and answered any questions that I had. He did a good job. The price was good and it was accurate. I had a friend that lives in Tucson that was there and met the driver. We had a little glitch on the address. Either Montway or I transposed the address numbers from 585 to 855. But when the driver called my friend in Tucson, she corrected it and there was no problem. The transport took five days from the time it left New York to Tucson.

Original review: Oct. 7, 2020

I had an ‘89 Porsche which I was giving to my grandson and I needed to transport it about 80 miles down there. I compared three transport options then I went with Montway because their price was good and they could do it quickly. Things went pretty smoothly and their service was a good value. But they came a day late and we were a little disappointed they didn’t get it on the day they promised. Just had too much going on. But that was the only problem that I had and once arriving, the driver was good. They handled the car with care and my grandson said it was handled well down there, too.

When they loaded it first, they told me they were going to have to take it back to their base and put it on a different truck to carry it. I needed a winch struck on this end because the battery was dead and I had an emergency brake. It was grabbing, so I decided not to try to charge it up and drive it, just let them winch it home. But the driver ended up taking it all the way down there with the same truck. So, it got there quickly and it took about an hour and a half. There was also no damage on the car when it arrived.

I was picking up a car in Scottsdale, Arizona. The guy down there said he was having trouble getting a shipper. So, I called Montway and I set it up with them to pick the car up in Arizona and bring it back here to Plymouth. After that, I called and got a quote because I was looking at another car in Seattle. They gave me a quote that I was happy with to bring the car here to Michigan, but the deal fell through.

The only thing I was a little disappointed on is when the guy was coming up here in Plymouth, Michigan and he called me to meet him over at a Walmart parking lot somewhere over off of Southfield Road in Southfield. I told him, “I'm not driving out there. With traffic, it's a half hour drive. What am I gonna do when I get there? I gotta drive there, leave my car there, and pick it up, and bring it back home. What am I gonna do? If you’re worried about where you’re gonna park, there’s a big parking lot up here at Home Depot, a mile from where I live. If you wanna meet me there, I'll meet you there, and I'll make arrangements for the car.” And he said, “Okay, I'll be there in a half hour.” That was around 7 o'clock. Finally, he started calling me at 9:30. I said to myself he better find a place to sleep because I’m not coming up there to pick up the car.

About 20 minutes or so, there was a knock at the front door. He said, “Here's your car in the front yard.” I asked, "How did you get in?” “Well, through the street.” “I told you you could have got here. I don’t know why you kept insisting.” And then when I called Montway's office, they sided with the driver and asked why I couldn't it up over there. I said because I didn’t pay for that. It was my understanding I paid for pick up at the door and deliver at the door. But we got through it. No big deal.

It was dark at night. But we walked around the car with a flashlight and the only concern I had was there were supposed to be two keys, and the driver said there was only one. I called the guy in Arizona and he said, “No,” he and Jay made a mistake. There was only one key. I said, “Fine then. Then we got everything you promised me that I would get.” And that was all set. Montway's driver took some pictures of the car. Other than that, everything was good. The next day, when I brought it out in the daylight, everything looked good on it.

They were fast in picking it up. When I called them to pick it up, it was three at the most that they did. And then they came here to drop it off a day earlier than they thought they would. I was perfectly happy with that. I couldn't ask for anything better. Picking it up and bringing it in here, the time was very short. That's why I wasn't afraid to call again on a couple of other cars that I was looking at to buy to get shipping quotes. Their quotes were close to what I was getting. So, I would use them again. There are no two ways about it.

Hello Angelo, thank you for the review. Montway provides door-to-door service. Which states that the driver will pick-up and/or deliver as legally and safely as possible to the locations. If the driver is restricted from entering the area or they feel it is unsafe, they will ask to meet at a designated nearby location. We're also here to provide assistance as well if coordinating a location is difficult. We reached out to the reviewer to provide further information. If the reviewer has any other questions or concerns, we ask that they send us an email to feedback@montway.com.

I needed to transport a car from Vancouver, Washington to Michigan. I checked out two of companies and based on their price and timing, I went with Montway. Their reps were very good and kept me up to date about what was going on. They informed me where the vehicle was and got back in touch with me when I was asking them about where it was while I was timing and when it was going to be arriving. The quote that they gave me was also good and the transport from beginning to end took six days. I thought it was going to be longer. The driver who picked the vehicle up delivered it to me and our interaction was very good. The vehicle was a little dusty when it arrived, but I could see why. Other than that, it was fine. I would recommend going with Montway to anybody else. They have very competitive pricing and their reps are very responsive to customer service needs.

We have a summer home in Maine, and we ship cars back and forth from Maine to Chicago twice a year. Once in the spring and once in the fall. That's about 1000 miles. I've been using Van 3 for the last 10 transfers. I've been doing this for about eight years, and I used a couple of other companies as well. However, I was super frustrated with Van 3 because the cars just go missing.

I don't lose my temper very often. Car shipping causes me to lose my temper a lot. It’s just simple stuff. It must be a pretty low-margin business. They pick up other jobs and do other things, which is fine. I don't care if it's a day late. They're just very poor about giving you the status. On the other hand, my experience with Montway this one time was perfect. They showed up when they would show up. They gave me direct access to the driver, the driver called me when he was close. We agreed on a meeting place. Everything went very smoothly. The quote was right on. I have a very good experience.

I looked at transport companies since I didn't want our daughter driving cross-country alone back to college. Montway's salespeople were obnoxious but the industry doesn't have the best reputation because of all these brokers out there fighting for your business. And these brokers are not good to deal with, whether it's Montway or some other company. The only incentive the broker has is to close the deal and they don't care about customer service as far I can tell. There's no incentive for them to give you a price that's realistic and they're just going to give you a price that is going to get you on the hook. And the pricing can be very problematic in this business because they'll try to lowball you in, then all sudden, all these other charges come up after you've committed and so on. So it's a bad brokerage experience.

Despite that, the quote that Montway gave me was very accurate. They gave me a price and in the end, that was the price I paid. But if you do any kind of research on this business, watch out because there's a lot of bait and switch that goes on. The whole transport took 10 days but the car didn't have to be there on a certain date. The driver was good and when my daughter received the car and she checked it out, it seemed fine. All in all, the brokers were typical of this industry but the actual delivery was as expected.
