Help needed! Auto transport SF to LA

McLaren in San Francisco has a car I purchased. I tried to make arrangements for transport with Intercity, but nothing available for at least two weeks. Horseless Carriage doesn't come here and Reliable, well they're not reliable. I looked at Cappy's but there's no activity since 2011 and the DOT website states that they're not authorized to operate. I understand Leno and Wayne Carini use Intercity and their reviews are superb.
Does anyone know of an alternative that's excellent, or do I have to continue to sit in my relatively empty garage and drink its beers?

Thanks for any information.

Ron

Ron, mclarensf should have been able to coordinate it for you.

Not sure if they put you in touch with Samir or not (Reserved Motorsports). I pretty much exclusively use him.

They gave me two contacts, one is Cappy's which isn't authorized to operate, and Reserved Motorsports, about which there is no information. No BBB or Yelp information and the DOT also states that they aren't authorized to operate:

And, according to this, the company has no insurance: http://www.quicktransportsolutions.c...ot-2163716.php

When did you use them last?

Thanks.

January 2017 was the last time I used him.

Ferrari Silicon Valley
Mclaren SF
Los Gatos Luxury Cars
Pagani USA
and a whole bunch of owners use him.

I'm not trying to plug him but he does a pretty good job and always tries to make it work for us.

A number of vehicle manufacturers use Select 1 Transport for their ride & drive programs. I've never hired them to move a personal vehicle, but that is a service they offer and I'd put them on par with Intercity.

Just spoke with him, sounds good, will be bringing my car down next week. He sent me photos of some transports he's done, very impressive and speaks volumes regarding the confidence level people have in his company.

So now I can relate that Samer was really great to deal with. I'm not that easy, lots of questions and concerns borne of bad prior experiences, so I was impressed with his responsiveness and patience. Excellent service, couldn't really ask for better. Nice-looking, immaculate transport rig as well, and Daniel, the driver, is a good guy.

Florida transporter is also a good option to choose.
