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 And it resulted in a lot of out of date information.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.

I would look for a better option. Have you considered driving it or you don't want to do that? It's not an easy task and you can get pretty tired. I don't even know if you're going to have a cheaper option this way. Or, you can look for car shipping services in order to make sure that they're going to deliver your car. I've heard many stories about different cars that were stolen because the companies were a scam in fact. Look out for as many reviews are possible and speak with the owner or the people who are running the business. It's safer this way
