I purchased a side-by-side in Georgia, and I didn't have the time to go get it. I got online and went through the databases of what everybody said about each major shipper, and Ship A Car was the one I liked. They had a better reach and they negotiated a better price. We live in a small city of 10,000 and for the drop-off, they drove into the country club where I live, parked down the road, dropped it off, handed me the keys, gave me the bill, and off I went. The vehicle was exactly the way I saw it when it was loaded. The driver took pictures of it.
I was very satisfied with the experience but the latest one that's coming up, they dropped the ball on it by accident. I bought a truck down in Marco Island and got the shipper to confirm and got them all their stuff. They must have given him the wrong bid, so the shipper went to get it this morning, and they wouldn't release it. They took off. Ship A Car called me because the guy left and went to his next pickup instead of calling, which he should have done. They could have taken 5 minutes and figured it out. So, I'm a little disappointed in the shipper that they subcontracted with. I've got a date of tomorrow as the latest that I can get this truck to the dealer or I lose $25,000. I'm a little bit anxious right now. Other than that, the guy I work with all the time on all my shipping is working really hard. So hopefully, we'll get it done or I'll owe a lot of money.
Thank you for choosing Ship a Car Inc. We apologize that the originally dispatched carrier didn’t work out. Thankfully we are happy that we were able to quickly dispatch another carrier that was able to meet your deadline and deliver 9/27 in time for the dealer. Thanks again for your kind words, and looking forward to helping with your next shipment. Regards, Jonathan

I bought a car from a dealer in Virginia and I found three or four shipping companies online and I got quotes. Jonathan, the fellow that I dealt with at Ship A Car, was the only one that bothered to call me and asked me if I had gotten the quotes, which came very quickly. He asked me a little bit about my situation and what I was looking to do. Jonathan was outstanding. At first, the deal wasn't going through and I talked to him and told him I couldn't book it. He said it was fine and to keep the quote. He said he'd check with me in a day or two and see where I was at. He called back the next day to check what they could do for me.
I did put the deal together and the car got picked up and delivered here to Milwaukee. But the car that I got was a piece of junk. I fought with the dealer for a few days and they agreed to take it back. I called Jonathan again and he immediately said that he has a driver in the area. He said he'd contact me. I wanted to get the car back to the dealer right away and Jonathan called me back about 20 minutes later. He said the driver that delivered the car was in Milwaukee. He asked how soon is the car ready and I told him I could get to the pickup in about an hour. He was right on top of it and took marvelous care of me. He kept me apprised of everything, including the driver situation. We got the car shipped back and I had a follow-up email from him letting me know that the car had been delivered. Jonathan is amazing. I wish when I had my business, I had five or six guys like that.
Thank you for your kind words. We are happy to have exceeded your expectations for shipping! I am sorry that the car you had purchased was not to your standard but when you find we look forward to helping getting it transported to you. Regards, Jonathan

I was impressed with Ship A Car’s ability to get someone to do the job. You tell them your needs and they put it on the board. It goes out for bidding but they'll tell you exactly what the situation is and what your options are. Everything went smoothly in setting up the transport. The sales rep was good. There were a couple of bumps in the road about stuff not being spelled right but we got that corrected quickly. The rates are kinda high but that's correlating with the high fuel cost right now. It could have been better if there was a little more flexibility on the price. But I’ve had good luck with Ship A Car and the driver was great to work with. He got there ahead of time and answered my text and phone calls. He did exactly as I told him to do and stayed in contact with me.
Mike,I appreciate the kind words.
Communication is key, I’m happy the driver stayed in contact with you.
Let me know when you’re ready to ship the next vehicle.Sincerely,

Setting up my transport was fine but one thing didn't go as well. Before I gave the vehicle to the semi driver, I washed and vacuumed it. I got a call from the semi driver who told me that I needed to pay him an extra $100 to wash the car so that the shipping company would accept it. It was not in a covered transport. So any dirt would have come from the semi driver. I called the shipper who said, "Yeah. Evidently, that's the case."
The vehicle got to me incredibly dirty inside and out. If it was sitting on a ship for a week and a half, that would make sense. There were no dents or scratches but I had paid someone an extra $100 to wash it inside and out. Also, it's an electric car and I had charged it to 75% of the battery and it had a range of 55 miles. When I got it, it had been driven quite a bit because it was down to a 30% charge and a range of 20 miles. I thought the semi driver drove it to go wash it but that's a lot of range to take just to go find a carwash.
We have noted your experience for our report as part of the record. We apologize for the inconvenience this rare circumstanced has caused, and have made changes to our terms with carriers to better address this moving forward. Unfortunately the driver had to address this in order for the second carrier to accept this so they could complete the transport to Hawaii. Thank you very much for your feedback. Thank you for the opportunity to help with your transport from Virginia to Hawaii. Regards, Jonathan

I did an internet search and obtained quotes online and through some phone calls. At one point, I even used a broker service that explored a multitude of different car carriers and sent me a bunch of different quotes based on a single form that I had filled out. I ended up using Ship A Car, which was one that I came across on the internet myself. Setting up the transport was easy. I dealt with one guy, and I told him the make and model and details for the timeframe. Once we agreed on the price, he said that he had a driver who had a spot on the vehicle that was available to come at a certain time and date. The person showed up and loaded up the truck, and away it went.
The driver did their inspection, and we did our inspection, documenting it with our own photographs. They walked it all down and had a form that noted all of the different scratches and dings that were present before transport. The transport was projected to take 4 to 5 days, and it took around two days. The quote was spot on. They said it was a specific dollar amount, and that was what it came out to be. I also did have an option for extra insurance coverage.
Thanks for your kind words. Glad to hear driver was professional, detailed and made better than estimated time. It was a pleasure working you. Take care, Jonathan

Ship A Car has been good to me. This is my sixth car shipping with them now. They're reliable. There are so many companies that would take your money, and they won't deliver or they would tell you different stories. After the second time they came through and delivered, I don't trust anybody else to do it. So every time I need anything, I call them directly. The customer service is good. I have one go-to lady that I talk to. Her name is Christine. If I don't talk to her, I don't feel comfortable. So, I let her handle all my stuff. Price is also very competitive. Ship A Car is a very good company. My latest experience was good. I was looking for other people to ship my car, and I remembered that I had Christine at Ship A Car. So, I called her and she found me a carrier and got that shipped. It came on time. They waited because we weren't even there when they got there. I didn't have any issues. The driver was cool.
It so wonderful having great customers like you, Mike! I want to say “Thank you” very much for the awesome review. I think the communication is important and I feel we communicate well on transporting your vehicles. I look forward to doing many more moves for you. You have my number, call me when you’re ready for the next one. Have a great day! – Kristina at Ship A Car Inc.

I liked Ship A Car's price. The sales team was great, especially Christina. Their website was very friendly, so I was able to use it with no problem. For the pick-up, I gave the driver the address, and he said he couldn't come to the address. We had to come to the Myers that was up the street. My perception was that they would pick it up at the house, but he said he couldn't do that. The delivery went great.

My experience with Ship A Car was great. The people were fantastic, had good contact and did fast shipping. I liked the guy that called me. He walked me through everything, so I went with them. He told me exactly what would happen, and that he would reach out and see what contractors were coming this way, and that they could do the day that I was looking for, which he did, and they got my Land Rover shipped the same day that I called him. The only thing is the driver did not give me a receipt for the money that I paid him. I should have gotten one. I Zelled him the money, and that was it. Also, we looked at the car, but I thought he'd have me sign something that everything was okay on the car when he dropped it off, but I didn't.

Ship A Car was amazing. I worked with a young lady who was out in Florida and she answered my phone call in person. She said she'd get right on it and within minutes, she got me a price of somebody. She did it so quick that the seller wasn't ready to pick up the bike for me, which was incredible. The carrier said they were on their way down the next day. But the seller had a doctor's appointment, so he couldn't make it to the pickup and we had to lose that carrier. But it took Ship A Car's rep a day or two to find another one. If I had to use anybody again, I'd use her any day of the week and twice on Sunday. She was that on top of it. The prices were also amazing and the driver was cool. He came down, dropped the bike off, and even put it in the garage for me. It couldn't have been a better experience.

Ship A Car's representatives were good. The driver of the truck called, said where he was, where he would be, and when the car would arrive, and it was right on time.

The rep from Ship A Car was super great, knowledgeable and very quick. He seemed like a nice guy and didn't seem like a robot with a book in front of him.

Our driver was fantastic. He got everything on time and was on point with the location that we needed. The communication was good. He called a day or a couple of hours out and was spot on, if not a little early. Everything was smooth. The cost was exactly in line. The distance wasn't an easy duck walk and it was a couple of days. It was the whole coast so that alone was worth it. My car was in the back of the trailer and it never moved throughout the entire duration of drop-offs. It was enclosed as well, so there was no weather or theft exposure. It was completely worry-free and exceeded expectations. It was a great experience with Ship A Car. We just used them a second time this week.

The rep that I talked to was very personable. She was able to get some quotes for me and reached out within a day or so to let me know based on the process. I wasn’t able to get a quote initially because of the location where I was at. But she was able to lock something in. It was a little more expensive, but I was more concerned about being able to leave on time than having to go through another vehicle transport service.
The driver relayed some different information because the truck that he brought was barely able to fit my wife's car in there. So he made some things happen by getting the previous car that was on his truck maneuvered in a way that my wife's SUV was able to get loaded up. Then he took pictures, and it departed within an hour or so. Everything arrived fairly well and in decent order. But whoever was paying the driver kind of haggled me as far as wanting to change my payment method, and I told her that wasn't going to happen. We went back and forth every time and I told her what was gonna happen and that was done. But that was an irritating experience.

We first initially went with Mercury and we had our car stuck in Nevada for two weeks. Then, I called Ship A Car. I was on the fence about going with them just because I was afraid to switch. Once I did and I got Sarah, within 45 minutes, they had a driver for our cars. So, I was in tears because I was excited.

Ship A Car was great. Sarah was like, "I'll put this on the board and it's all up to you. You set the price, we'll put a ballpark. And if the driver comes and says, 'You know what? I won't do it for 3,000. I'll do it for 3,200,' that's all up to you whether you say yes or no. We have no decision in that. That's your decision." They took the 3,000.

When I contacted Jonathan from Ship A Car, he was phenomenal with everything. He answered and walked me through it and gave me the assurance that everything was gonna be fine. I knew that I was talking to the right person and I chose the right company just by speaking to him. The driver was also fabulous. The man has a trailer that is bigger than a tractor trailer and I watched him turn it around and wiggle it down to the road. I lived in a very rural area at the time and I have moved since then and that's why I'm here where I'm at now. But what he did was phenomenal. To drive and back the truck down the road to my driveway was beyond expectations. He had to make a few adjustments to make it into the road in the first place to back it down. It was a small road entranceway.
He had two ways to drop it off and he arrived where the bike was right in front of my house. It wasn't on the other side. It was right in front of my house, which wouldn't have made a difference to me, but it was. It actually did in the long run. He put it in front of my house. Everything was perfect. My motorcycle has always had this one blanket that it has had over its gas tank since I bought it. I asked him if he would mind putting this home and leaving it on the tank as it goes and it did. It arrived with it on there. I have watched him drive away and it arrived with the blanket on the tank.
