Car Shipping companies/prices

Hey guys,

Hoping someone could help me out - looking to ship a car from Vancouver to Calgary and just want to see what's out there.

Anyone have experience or know someone who does? What are some of the better companies who do this? What's the typical price for this? (It's an LS430)

Thanks in advance!

I had good luck with these guys last year - Transport Car-Fré | Transportation of vehicles. They were substantial cheaper than Allied, Kee West, etc for an open carrier. Rail may be cheaper but it takes longer. For rail try L. Hansens Forwarding or Livingston.

My best guess is between $500 - $800 dollar to Calgary.

I used Jetsai - enclosed, door to door service. He picked up the car Tuesday afternoon from Red Deer and dropped it off at my door Wednesday morning.

Super nice guy to boot as well.

HJ Hall Transport

know the owner/driver personally he's great guy and very upfront with his pricing, he offers enclosed or open deck transport depending on what you want from what I remember.
