  • car transport

    I’m considering having a car shipped from Seattle to Salt Lake. What companies do car transport? What has been the experience of others?

    I don't know about from Seattle, or Northern US transport companies, However if you'd consider shipping it from Palmdale to Salt Lake... I'll get you a quote and a bonded & insured transporter.

      Re: car transport

      I've done this twice and getting a good rate requires a bit of 'virtual' legwork. Rates vary widely from one transporter or broker to another. After getting a quote from DAS (which has a click ad on many auto sites) I found a website which would send my details to a bunch of companies to quote. I probably got 8 responses and ended up saving about 50% over DAS rate from a broker just a few miles from my house. There are several options -- door to door is the most convenient. You can also choose an enclosed truck over an open truck if you're worried about damage from flying debris. I used an open truck both times and didn't have any problems. Once your car is on the way, don't be surprised if there are minor delays or if it seems like it takes forever for the car to get that last few miles to your house.

        Who was the transport broker that got you multiple bids? I have been shipping cars to Utah and other wayward locations and could use that name.

          I found dasautoshippers.com to be good for a quick quote, but like Curtis asked, I think it would be great to get that website address or some contact info on a good broker. Thanks “freedml” for your response.

            I could really use the website you generated multiple quotes fror as I am about to ship a vehicle and would love to save some $$$ - part of why we drive CNG cars, right?

            Thanks

              I was going to ship a car last year and the lowest quote I got was from allproautotransport.com . About 40 % below DAS. Ended up not shipping , so I can't vouch for the service.
