I had my car moved from Michigan to Kansas. My agent was professional and courteous from the very first phone call. The car shipping process was beautifully uneventful. Such a breath of fresh air compared to all the horror stories of other car shipping companies online. Would HIGHLY recommend them and would use them again in a heartbeat!
