Read post #81 again in case anyone missed it. Premium transport for a cheap car is just not worth it, and for many people is simply not in the budget.
Anyway: Last time I needed transport I contacted the "premium" places for a quote from FL to ID:
Intercity response was "We could not offer you good availability with timing on this move as this is not a normal route for us. Thanks."
Reliable quoted ~$2600 and 3-5 week time frame.
McCollisters quoted $3000 and did not specify time frame.
Passport... I can't find the quote info, IIRC their website may not have given a quote but instead given a message similar to Intercity ("we don't like your origin and/or destination").
I ended up using Kathy (broker) who connected me with MBL Express, $1550 total for open transport. Car arrived undamaged.
Sure, I'd love enclosed white-glove treatment but a ±$1500 premium for it is simply out of my financial means. Again, if I buying a $30-$50k car, it would make sense as insurance (primarily for hard-sided enclosed, protection from the elements)... but cars in that price range are also out of my financial means.
