Default best company to ship a car with

I have been getting a few quotes for shipping my PA. I would like to know what company'* anyone has used in the past that has good cheap rates.

1999 Buick Park Avenue
56024 to 89701

These are the cheapest quote I have gotten so far

www.AAAT.com/CarShippers - $1100
www.DASautoshippers.com - $953
www.chariottransport.com - $880

Thanks Hans. It looks like $800 on there. I am going to tell the lady it will cost between 800-1000

we are not even close to discussing payment or price yet.

she is still yet to see the picture I emailed her. She was at the dentist (in the chair) last time I called her.

thanks for looking out though

I'm sure most scams are by people selling cars. Like this one -http://modesto.craigslist.org/car/489676198.html.

I'd also be very suspicious of anyone who would buy a car sight unseen.

WHAT NOT TO DO:

Fill out an online quote and include your email and phone number. So far, I have been called twice today, and have been emailed 12+ different quotes from different companies. I did not sign up for uship, so one of these companies must be selling my information to others. ugh
