I looked into shipping a car once and a motorcycle once.  Both times were 
educational in that I found that most of the people offering to ship the car 
were brokers, and they would call and call and call and call even after you 
told them no thanks. The brokers also seemed willing to promise you anything 
on the phone, but the written quotes contained loopholes that based on some 
horror stories I heard, could be very ugly when they don't pick up the car 
when they say, or they take 4 times as long to deliver it, and argue with 
you over the damage they cause.   I ended up driving or flying to pick up 
the vehicle both times, it was just cheaper and easier for me.

But the list has had several recommendations in the past.  I know one of 
them was for Passport auto transport, which has been bought by Fedex Custom 
Critical several years ago, and seems to have the specialize enclosed trucks 
for transporting with lift mechanisms so your car doesn't even have to drive 
up a ramp.

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out.
