I used Sierra Mountain Express back in 1989 located in Concord, California.
They delivered my current Tiger from Washington state to Bakersfield, Ca.
It was an open trailer, cost about $300 back then. We arranged a certain
time and place ahead of time; when I showed up, the car was off the trailer
and ready to drive. My one experience with them was positive. Don't even
know if they are still in business...

get it from northern California to near Tucson, Arizona where I am. I filled
out an on line car shipping quote request form and I got literally more than
20 quotes, ranging from $525 low (cheap) and all the way up to almost $1,000
(ridiculous), all in an open carrier truck.
Naturally I want to pay the least but don't want to wait a long time to get
the car picked up.
So, any company recommendation where you've had a car shipped yourself would
be greatly appreciated.
