Due to the lack of decent cars in Idaho it appears that I will need to ship my car from the midwest or from out east.


Does anyone have any experience with any auto transport services?


I have looked into the ebay prefered method but that is always over $1000 for one way transit. Looking for a cheaper and just as reliable way to get a car 2500 miles.

hrm... not sure how much to ship, but I think it is around $1000. find something in Binghamton, NY I can have my dad check it out. Or send me what you are looking for and I'll have him keep his eyes open for one.
