Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
Do you need enclosed? I used a guy out of western MA to bring a car in from upstate/western NY, but his trailer isn't enclosed.
I just did this last month through U-Ship-It. You tell driver where the car is and where it needs to go. Various companies bid on it. They have ratings you can see, they provide proof of licensure and insurance.
It is interesting though because the prices drop, from the same vendor by $3-400. Sometimes $500. I found that the third day after posting the ad is where offers started leveling off.
It's from Florida to Massachusetts. Vero Beach. Doesn't need to be enclosed.
Mine was Tampa to Acton, uncovered Inifiniti QX4 (no mods), and it was in the $850-900 range. Took about a week.
There's this Russian company I heard of in West Springfield........
I know, thats what Im worried about..
Amtrak Auto Train | Amtrak Vacations
Do it yourself, drive Vero to Sanford, get on the Auto Train, arrive just south of DC the next morning, then a 9 hour drive into MA.
( I see GMTA)
My folks have used the auto train on multiple occasions and have great comments on it. It’s not cheap though if you’re comparing it against just a shipping company since you have to fly down and then train and drive back.
If it’s just a daily driver and you’re not too concerned about it. Then UShip is an option
For me. I’ve posted about it before. I trust 3 carriers to move a car.
If you let me pack the trunk with a few boxes, I can find a guy to drive it....Now I will have no connection with that said driver nor any of the contents in the car
When I moved my miata from NH to SC, in 2015 :
used these guys , very happy with the service and communications.

Cost me $819
I've used these guys a couple times with very good results. These were west coast and back transports for us but they can arrange shipping anywhere.
1st Call Auto Haul
Sorry I can't remember the name but there is an auto transport out of Epping, NH that took my dad's car down and back with no problems at all and cost was reasonable.
I have done the Tampa or Jacksonville to Boston drive 4 times, and I purchased my 911 in Seattle and drove it back to Boston. That was a hell of a trip, and one I'd do again in a heart beat. Unfortunately, we didn't have time for that with this vehicle so we had to rely on a carrier.
Depends on the car. 30-100K antique or classic, a road chip or minor debris damage could make the difference between covered and uncovered, despite the insurance. A 10 year old top line paint job needing a simple touch up is not simple.
Intercity Lines out of Mass has been very good for me several times. They offer open and enclosed.
Crafts is also running ME to FL all the time.
Ask for an upper berth...no fluids dripping on your ride. In 2014 I shipped a Miata from Wesley Chapel, Fl to Ma for $7/800
Friend used to use Amtrak deal it to ship his daughter from barrington R.I. to college and then grad school to Georgia each year. Would load the car to the rooftop with all of her crap and then stick it on the train. Mom and kid would then fly down and do the mother daughter fix up the room/apartment deal whilst he hung around at home and drank beer. He thought that it was a great deal!
