    Car Transport

    A little help? I am going to be transporting an Infiniti Q45 from Las Vegas to Naples. The moving company got a quote of about $1500, enclosed. Does this seem reasonable? I've never moved a car in an enclosed trailer before.

    Thanks!

    Sounds very reasonable.

    Naples, Italy or Florida? Is this your first time having a car transported?

    Did you get the quote from a reputable company or a broker?

    Sorry, didn't specify- Florida. I guess if it were Italy I would have to specify a truck with really buoyant tires.

    I'm not even sure who the carrier is. The moving company in Las Vegas secured the quote. I probably would have been much more particular had I been moving the Z8 or Porsche. What questions should I ask?

    The reason that I asked is because a friend of mine bought Harry Trumans Buick at auction and hired an enclosed transport to deliver it to his showroom. The service that he hired brokered it out to "a guy with a flatbed" and during the trip from Denver to Modesto, the rag top blew off and was severely damaged. The truck owner had no bond or insurance so....

    Ask for proof of insurance, references, a phone number for the driver (so that you can call for updates) and specific pick up and delivery points.

    Z-Man,

    Gran Turismo is a good company with 9 enclosed vehicles.

    They recently moved a car for me about the same distance as your move for $1500.00.

    Thanks guys. It is going to store for a while. If you can believe it, I sold my LV house on the first showing. I assumed I had 4-6 months to condo shop in Naples. I'm heading down next week to try and bottom feed.

    I used Reliable Auto Transport a few months ago...

    No problems and they only use their drivers, their trucks.

    I used them several times when I was a Florida snowbird. Enclosed carrier and they take great care of the cars. All high end cars in the trailer.
