The #1 thing that separates us from ALL others is that we back our rigorously PRE-SCREENED carriers with $500 in FREE Gap Coverage. We're the ONLY company that offers this. (BUT it's the Peace of Mind of avoiding the carriers on our *BLACKLIST* that's the REAL Benefit). Out of 7500+ carriers available, we DO NOT USE 75% of them, because they do not meet our demanding standards... and your high expectations. It's the way we can provide you with the guarantees you desire: The industry's only "Damage Free or We Pay You" Guarantee, Door-to-Door delivery, and 100% Insurance, all with NO UPFRONT DEPOSIT required. The fact that you are here shows that you care about quality as much as we do. This is a great site and should prove extremely useful in making your decision as well as avoiding common problems. Our advice is to start by reading the bad reviews. You can learn a lot from another person's problems as well as get a feel for the company based on their response. All of our reviews are directly from our customers. Click the link above to visit our website and get a FREE ONLINE CUSTOM QUOTE, Tailor made to your specific situation.

    Response:Thanks for the positive review, Michael! And it's a good point, pricing is a concern for many shippers. The thing is, there are many different indpendent carriers that serve your route and each independent carrier sets their own rates. We provide an estimate that is in the ballpark for confirming one of our terrific, pre-screened carriers. But not all carriers are constantly available, sometimes the only way to hit your preferred timing is to increase your offer. Hope that helps! [ view ]

    Response:As the owner, I can assure anyone reading this that we are none of these things. I am sorry that Michelle is having a tough time, and I share her frustration. This carrier - Auto Transport Nationwide Corp out of Sunny isles, FL - is indeed dreadful and has been removed from our list. If you decide to go with one of our many competitors, you should be very wary and ask for a new carrier if they assign this carrier to you, but rest assured, they will never haul another car for us again. I pay thousands of dollars in damage claims to customers each year when carriers like this one fail to cover damage done at their hands. I can equally assure, none of our competitors do this. We have explained to Michelle what needs to be done to get our damage reimbursement and are merely waiting for her documentation. As for compensating customers only for giving us positive feedback, you need only look through the complaints on this site and count the number that received a rebate for leaving us their negative review. Out of the approximately 1000 vehicles we move each month, we always get 1 or two negative ones, and they receive the same rebate amount as anyone else. We will continue to help Michelle through this situation and assure it gets resolved, and perhaps she will come back here and confirm so when it is, but for now, just understand that having damage occur to your vehicle is rare, but VERY frustrating when it happens, so her anger is completely justified. Hang in there, Michelle, we are not lying to you nor stealing anything from you and will continue to work to get things resolved. [ view ]
