Did a quick search but I was having trouble navigating the search results to find the info I am looking for.

So...I was hoping someone could help me out. I am trying to find someone here who can give me personal experience with a transport company (trucker or broker) that does cross country shipping, specifically WA to FL. I called a bunch of brokers and all the prices were within a hundred dollars or so of each other so I know what it's going to cost but I want to find someone who has done it and can say that this company was good or bad so I know which company to trust.

Thank you very much!
Dan

I used National Auto Transport (a broker) back in February to have a single cab transported from Acton California to Central Illinois. It was just over $900 total to ship. I would NOT recommend using NAT though. While the truck arrived here in undamaged condition on what looked to be a well-maintained transport rig - the dates of pickup in California were pushed back over and over again with delay after delay. NAT never returned any of my calls, and i had to call THEM for updates on the timeline when the transport truck didn't show up at the pickup point in California multiple times.

Maybe it was an isolated incident for that company... but I would not use them again based on my experience.
