I want to ship my car to Scottsdale Arizona from Bethesda Maryland?

I need to ship my car from Bethesda, Maryland to Scottsdale, Arizona in early winter and back to Maryland in the spring. How do I find the most reliable company to do this? Would my auto ins cover this trip if something would happen and are these companies bonded? I am handing over my car with the keys and it scares me a little bit. Any pros or cons would be helpful also.

Fire have give you good points in his/her answer.First at all, when it comes to transport a car long distance, drive it yourself is not a wise decision unless you are want to have new experience and take it as a road trip.So, the better idea is just go to car shipping company and pay for their services, the cost would be depend on several factors,Your car type - weight is primary factorShipping time - winter can be categorized as off peak shipping season so you may get a little bit cheap cost rather than ship it on summer.Method - enclosed transport would be the safest method, however it was costlyinsurance - not a must but important for some peopleCompany - different company would give you different costDistance - another primary factor beside car typeand any other minor factor such as route, terminal shipping,etcAbout which company to go, this was a pretty hard decision to take, there is lot number of companies out there, and selecting one would be a hard task. Basically, auto transport business is divided into 2 main categories, auto transport carrier who have own truck and auto transport broker who act as a middle man between you and auto transport carriers, it might sound that the carrier one is the best one to deal with, but some reliable brokers should be count as they are have large connection on auto transport business.So the best way is collect as much information online, get quoted on several companies, and select one which suited to your needs. About my own recommendation, you can tryhttp://www.a1autotransport.comAnd not need to worry about your car safety, as long as you deal with legit and reputable one, you might get a good services and your car would be extremely safe.Hope this help

750 for each trip on a car carrier.A couple of things you should know. The car transportation companies are really brokers. They will give you a quote, and they put the trip on line for independent carriers (who have provided them with proof of insurance) to bid on the job. This means that the car may or may not arrive on time. The driver of the car carrier is trying to maximize the load and rather than going straight from MD to AZ, may go by way of Chicago or Las Vegas.Shop around, and check out consumer complaints on line before you book. You may want to consider driving the car yourself seeing as when you add the savings of the cost of the flight, and consider the cost of fuel and hotels, it may not be that much moreSource(s):32 years in the auto business
