Default Car shipper from CO to CA

Anyone know a great enclosed rig shipper that can bring my 95 M3 to CA?

Intercity are backed up, Horseless Carriage seem to think it is a Ferrari as to pricing.

Any good referrals welcome.

But do you think it costs any more or less for your car to be hauled than a Ferrari? Do you want it taken care of? Or do you not care if it ever shows up? Trucks go by weight and insurance. If you want it there in one piece and no hassles then you have to pay. Otherwise it is a very cheap flight and just burn the gas...

I bought an E46 M3 from New York a few months ago, booked my shipping to LA through uShip. FWIW the enclosed shipping is about double the price. I did a regular open truck and nothing bad happened in transport, they have insurance, etc etc etc... Although I guess winter weather might be a concern? If you're moving house or business, your movers can theoretically put the car in the moving truck too.

Yes, the costs for a high value collectible are much higher. They wrap the car and of course the insurance is much higher. And I care if it shows up, right now in CO there is snow on the ground and the car is wearing summer tires. But thank you for the sincere and helpful comments, you display a keen wit even if you didn't have any helpful shipper suggestions.

Give Aaron a call at Summit. There's an annual 100 series Land Cruiser event in CO that many of us use Summit to get our rigs out there from all over the country. Tell him you heard about him from Hundreds in the Hills. I think he's based in CO. You can also get a quote from his site online:

I'm in CO and could be willing to drive it out there for a fee, if it comes down to that.

Honestly, though, I think you could do it cheap in a weekend.

Unless it's currently snowing, CO roads are usually nice and dry. I wouldn't worry about the summer tires in that case.

Feel free to give me a shout if you need any assistance OP. Good luck.

Do NOT use G Time Carrier LLC., they totaled my old 95M shell, tried to lie about the damage. Thankfully I took plenty of pics.

His insurance did pay $10,5k for an M3 shell though.

I am in touch with Aaron at Summit, he made me a good price and can pick up the car week after next. I would have loved to take the wife and drive back, see some sights but no matter which way you go there are a few passes high enough to be problematic. Food, air, motels and gas come out to just under what Aaron is charging for an enclosed transport.
So, the road trip with the bride will be in CA to wine country when the car arrives.

Thank you all

Looking forward to seeing the car. Post up when it arrives. I dream of buying a car long distance just so I can feel that excitement of it being unloaded in front of my house after the wait.
