I used DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers ?)
to move a roadster from San Diego to Idaho,
used open transport, terminal to terminal
to get the best price.

Car arrived on time, (good)
  got calls from the receiver (good)
telling me when they were open and when I could pickup the car.
Battery was dead when I got the car, we had to jump it, (bad)
the guy at the receiving terminal also tried to charge me storage and 
additional fees (bad)

knowing this would probably happen, I had my shipping contract papers in hand
and my cell phone, gladly offered to call the DAS shipping office
and have them verify what I paid for......
that immediately ended the receiving guy trying to charge me anything 
but he wasn't happy !

good luck
