I want to ship my Alfa from Las Vegas to NY. I have never shipped a car before. I am actually getting reasonable quotes ($1,500) And just a little bit more for enclosed shipping ($1,900). My concerns are:
One shipper said you pay 1/2 with a credit card and 1/2 in cash to the driver upon arrival. Is this a real practise? This sounds like there might be an opportunity for extortion. Another shipper said just pay us 100% with a credit card. When I asked the shippers about insurance they claimed that all of their enclosed shippers have insurance and if there is damage, that I do not pay anything - as it is the shipper’s problem.
If you have any advice I will gladly take it. For the “use the search function” police out there, I did. And it resulted in a lot of out of date information.
Thank You!

There are a few nationally known shippers with proven track records. I'm sorry, I haven't dug into it enough to make a recommendation, but see if you can get some from the classic car auctions - I'm sure they have some known good shippers. Meekum, McLoud, Barrett-Jackson, etc.
