    Any suggestions? Preferrably, it would be someone who could pick it up late next week? TIA

    Call DAS Shippers at (800) 826-1083. Make sure you tell them you need a enclosed trailer.

    Hope that helps!

    I have used Intercity Lines twice with great results. Both times were from CO to CA. Good service and communication.

    Call Mary Anno at TNT Auto Transport 1.866.566.5227. They have always taken awesome care of my vehicles and can often work with a tight schedule. They are truly door-to-door and don't take the car off of the trailer at a terminal, let it sit a day or so and put it on a different trailer, etc. They also call you daily with a report on where the driver is and if there is any change to the estimated delivery date...Great peace of mind!

    Regardless of who you choose, make sure that "enclosed transport" means enclosed from door-to-door. I had an issue with DAS a couple years ago b/c even though they brought my car across the country in a trailer, the final delivery was done on a flatbed tow truck...which the car did not want to come off of due to the low ground clearance. It was a nightmare to say the least watching the driver offload the car.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've used Intercity very happily in the past but wouldn't use DAS if they paid ME to transport it.

    I've only used Passport once, but it wasn't a pleasant experience time wise (reality vs. promised, etc).

    I recently used Horseless Carrage to transport my 355 F1 to Boardwalk Ferrari (Ferrari of Dallas). Enclosed trailer only a few months old, got their name from the dealer as a recomended service. No issues or problems.

    I had my 360 spider transported from CA to NC by Gary Almond. He is very active in the Viper boards and transports many of them from owners to tuner shops. My friend used him for his Murcielago. The guy is very anal about cars, super nice and accomodating. He has a single enclosed trailer specially altered for low profile cars. He is my definate first choice if he is available. I would be uncomfortable with using those multi car transporters even if they were enclosed. Who knows what goes on during the loading and unloading process let alone joy rides at rest stops have crossed my mind. The good thing about Gary is that he is a "car guy" not just a truck driver. Hope this helps. http://www.almondexotictransports.com/ I think another 360 owner Tom Pham who is on this site used Gary also.

    Fly in and drive it back. The mountains are beautiful in Sept and the weather is generally perfect (watch forecasts) You'll have a memory you won't ever tire of!

    Sounds great, but we're expecting our first child soon and I don't wanna risk missing it. Also, it's doubtful I would be a licensed driver by the time I got back :)

    Ben,

    Sorry I couldn't help you out. My business is growing very fast and I'm trying to expand without losing the "personal touch" that I offer. It's funny, a couple of weeks ago I was worried that business was getting a little "quiet". Now it's off the hook again. Let me know if I can help out in the future or if you can't find someone to transport your car.

    Phong,

    Thanks for your support--it is very much appreciated! By the way, I dropped off Linh's Viper this morning!

    Thanks. Jonathan rapidly hooked me up with a carrier which he swears by for shipping his Lambos and F-cars at a great price that perfectly fits my desired time frame.

    Glad I was able to help Ben, I only wish my trucks were able to do it for you. Doug and I have been working together for quite some time helping each other out and you will not be disappointed.
