I just bought another Rolls Royce. It's a rather nice car in which the seller agreed to sell ONLY if it was transported in an enclosed trailer. The car is in the Los Angeles area, & I am in NC. I do not want to go through a broker. I want to deal with the actual transport company or the driver. Would anyone have a recommendation in the Los Angeles area?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you have Shiply in USA?

You need a transporter with a backload to make it viable.

Good luck with you new car.

Hope you had inspected.

Richard,

I have no idea which of the companies listed in the RR & Bentley Parts, Repair, Restoration & Other Resources Compilation are brokers versus "actual transport companies," but Reliable has a location in LA and the company has been recommended in the past (as have all companies in the AUTOMOBILE TRANSPORT COMPANIES category).

I cannot imagine dealing with someone selling who wants to dictate to me what I'll do with something after I own it. (Real estate easements aside).

Richard, I think that UShip is similar to Shiply that Paul mentions. I used to UShip to contract shipping for a parts car from Oregon to Utah for $600. It wasn't in an enclosed trailer but you can specify anything you want. UShip lets customers and transporters work out the price amongst themselves.
You can usually get a pretty good deal because a driver would rather take your car back East for a reduced fee than go back home empty.
