Anybody know any reliable transporting companies?

I am trying to buy a 360 spyder from Long Beach and need to ship it to Eldorado Hills. Dealer only knows locals tow trucks.

I want to transport it in a enclosed trailer.

Any suggestions?

Start with one of our sponsors who is VERY good Intercity Lines - Ferrari Life

if you review the thread I believe there is a secret code to get a discount. BUT and I don't know this month's situation or his capacity, but with Cavallino and Pebble going on, you might need to understand many are on a tight schedule.

Paul, I've used and highly recommend Innercity Lines (800) 221-3936. Ask for Jeff - if appropriate let him know Fiskdale Lee referred you; Intercity Lines, Inc.. Good luck with your purchase - don't forget an inspection.

Dear Paul916,

Another vote for Intercity, they took very good care of getting the car to/from Pebble and return from Elkhart as well.

Best regards,

Robert

Thank you for the suggestion. I found a local transport company A Class Carriers out of Sacramento. So far looks very legit and very friendly customer service. I'll See how they do.

I placed an order for a enclosed transporter and the guy said its gona be around $500.

I'll let you guys know how they do.


Thanks for all of the help!

If it's Eldorado Hills northern CA, drive it! I was thinking you were heading east to Indiana. There's some cool karma buying a 360 and having a 360m ride ahead of you following delivery. Great time of year too.

Please do keep us posted.

Hey Mikeyr,


I wish but it's a long drive about 8 Hours. I had work meeting couple clients this week. So driving it was not an option for me.


But hey she was delivered to me today a few hours ago, they did a great job picked her up yesterday and delivery overnight.


Transaction went smooth! Give them a try very affordable rates and great customer service.
www.aclasscarriers.com and 800-541-1740 I spoke to Vince at the office.


Thanks everybody for all of your help see you on the streets

driving it home because you had to work with clients is a very valid reason and one that I fully understand. You have to pay for the car after all.

Long 8 hour drive is the reason you should have taken a vacation day and drove it home my drive home was 11 hours.

I was lucky and was able to schedule my flight out on Friday after work and drove home on Saturday. It was a bad time of year for me at work and I could not have taken time off at that time and considered shipping also.

Thats true but my weekends are always busy to so its kinda pain to take a few days off. So transporting it was the easiest option for me and the quickest.

11 hours thats a long drive lol I wouldnt be able to do that in a small car.
